Adolf Dehn was one of the most notable lithographers of the 20th century.
Born in Waterville, Minnesota, he entered the Minneapolis School of Art after high school. Later he was one of a dozen students in the country to earn a scholarship to the Art Students League of New York. After graduation, he was drafted to serve in World War I, but he was a conscientious objector. Dehn was imprisoned for two years for refusing to serve in the military.

After WWI he went to Europe - Paris and Vienna - where he belonged to a group of intellectuals and artists, including E.E. Cummings. Dehn's caricatures depicting the Roaring 20s, burlesque, opera houses, and the café scene appeared in such magazines as Vanity Fair, the New Yorker and Vogue.
In 1939, Dehn earned a Guggenheim Fellowship which allowed him to travel. In 1940s, he taught students lithography techniques.
