Werner David Feist, 1927–1930, a student of the School of Bauhaus in Dessau, Germany, was both a renowned artist and photographer. His expressive images are composed with an all-pervasive dynamism.
Henry Moore Country, an original acrylic on paper is one of his unique works from the 90's. The subtle color and form variations lend this piece a wonderful dream-like quality.
After leaving the Bauhaus, Feist initially worked as a graphic artist in Prague until 1933 and continued there as a self-employed graphic designer and commercial photographer until 1939. In March 1939, when Prague was occupied by the German army, he fled via Poland to the United Kingdom.
The Goethe Institute in Montreal presented his work in one-man retrospective exhibitions held in 1976 and 1985. His photographic work was also exhibited at a group exhibition in 1985–1986 shown at the Musée de l’Art Contemporain in Montreal and at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne. In 1990–1991, Feist’s photographic work formed a major component of a touring exhibition entitled 'Fotografie am Bauhaus', organized by Jeannine Fiedler for the Bauhaus-Archive Berlin / Museum für Gestaltung.
