Ernest Fiene (November 2, 1894–August 10, 1965) was a 20th-century American graphic artist known primarily for his varied printed works, including lithographs and etchings. Fiene was born in Germany . He fled Germany in 1912 to avoid military service in what would become World War I. Traveling first to the Netherlands, he continued on to the United States.

From 1914 he studied at the National Academy of Design in New York City, and from 1916 to 1918 at the Beaux Arts Institute. In 1923, Fiene continued his study of printmaking at the Art Students League of New York. In 1921 he married Jeannette Etarre. He had his first solo show at the Whitney Studio Club.

From 1928 to 1929 Fiene studied in Paris and traveled in France. In 1932, he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship which allowed him to study mural painting in Italy. 

Fiene re-established his relationship with the Art Students League in 1948, returning to teach classes in painting and drawing there. In 1948, he was elected into the National Academy of Design as an Associate member, and became a full Academician in 1952. In the 1950s he also served on the faculty of the Famous Artists School in Westport, Connecticut.

Fiene died of a heart attack in Paris in 1965. More on Ernest Fiene

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
