Painter and printmaker Werner Drewes (1899-1985) studied with Paul Klee, Johannes Itten, and Oskar Schlemmer at the Bauhaus in Weimar. Born in Germany, Drewes immigrated to the United States in 1930 and was a founding member of the American Abstract Artists group.

Throughout his life, Drewes would design and print greetings to send to his friends and family. These original Christmas cards were created by Drewes and are a part of the Werner Drewes papers, 1924-1984. All cards date from the latter half of the 20th century.
