Kurt Lewy studied at the Folkwangschule in Essen and from 1919 to 1923 at the college of applied arts in Berlin. He went on to study enamel sculpture in Pforzheim. He is most known for his geometric paintings. These paintings are balanced yet dynamic; they examine the power that color and line alone can have.
