Dehn studied at the Minnesota School of Art (1914) and won a scholarship to the Art Students League in New York. In the twenties he drifted about Europe supporting himself through his lithography. He returned to America in 1929 and by the mid-thirties was drawing caricatures for New Yorker, Vogue etc. Parallel to this he was developing his lithography and became a leading American exponent of the medium.
