Biography  
Dorothy Dehner


Painter, sculptor, art writer, and poet, Dorothy Dehner explored abstraction*, cubism*, realism* and surrealism* during her artistic journey.  Early in her career she was known for painting and for large-cast metal sculptures, but in the 1950s and 1960s, turned increasingly to wood cut into hard-edge geometric shapes.  From 1950, she lived primarily in New York City. 

Dorothy Dehner was born in 1901 in Cleveland, Ohio, but, as a teenager in 1916, moved to Pasadena, California when her parents died.  Her artistic interests were initially in acting.  She majored in drama at UCLA for the school year of 1922-1923, then moved to New York City to study acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Art.
