Deutsch's life and artistic career (as an artist, architect, art director and movie costume designer) went through several very pronounced stages. Born in Vienna and self taught, Deutsch began work in Berlin, where he joined the prestigious firm of Hollerbaum and Schmidt. After World War I he returned to Vienna where he changed his name to Dryden. Ultimately, he fled Europe in the face of the growing Nazi threat before the Second World War, and settled in Hollywood, California. During his Berlin years Deutsch's elegant, sometimes decadent, style was lighter, softer, less serious and stiff then the work of his contemporaries in Berlin.” (Swann)
