Hermann Stenner studied at the Academies of Art in Munich and Stuttgart and, later, became a master student of Adolf Hölzel, who provided him with a studio. Hölzel's openness towards contemporary artistic movements enabled him to develop his creative potential freely, and he received important stimuli from the Sonderbund exhibition in Cologne which he visited in 1912. Stenner developed an Expressionist style, with clear compositions, increasingly abstract colours and linear, two-dimensional shapes, so that his oeuvre displayed a certain kinship with the “Blaue Reiter”. The artist's success started at an early stage, with numerous exhibitions, including the First German Expressionists' Exhibition in Dresden in 1913. His climax came a year later when, together with Willi Baumeister and Oskar Schlemmer, he received an order to create murals for the building of the German Werkbund Exhibition in Cologne. Stenner died at an early age in the war, leaving behind a highly prolific oeuvre. He can be regarded as a major talent among Germany's young avant-garde.
