Michael Werner - brief biography:
Born in France, 1912, Werner studied at the famous Atelier 17 studio in Paris, under the British painter and printmaker Stanley Hayter. Aged 26, Werner moved to the UK, where he would remain until his death. In 1960, he was represented by Annely Juda Fine Art, London, and exhibited at ICA; Arts Council; Royal Academy; and MOMA (Paris), among others. From 1959 until his retirement, Werner held teaching posts at various art schools across the country. 
Werner is represented in the permanent public collections of MOMA (Los Angeles), and Smithsonian Institute (Washington), while examples of his work were also included in the private collections of art historian E. H. Gombrich, and the British Surrealist Sir Roland Penrose.
A versatile artist who experimented with different media and styles, Werner produced portrait busts (including one of the poet WH Auden); Abstract Expressionist paintings; as well as Pop Art collages. In the last 20 years of his life, Werner turned his attention to small pen on paper drawings, which combined abstraction and Surrealism. In this drawing, seemingly frenzied and thoughtless pen strokes / scribbles come together to represent the head of a man.
