      Born in Vienna, Dryden's career followed two different paths, both of which led to great success. His early career was spent in Berlin prior to the World War I, where he designed elegant posters for fashionable restaurants and cabarets, all published by the prominent printer Hollerbaum & Schmidt. From 1926-1933 he lived in Paris before ultimately fleeing Europe in the face of the growing Nazi threat before World War II. He settled in Hollywood, California, where he became a top stage and costume designer for the movie industry, until his death in 1938.
