German-Jewish art director who settled and worked for many years in the United States. Feld was the elder brother of the actor Fritz Feld.

During his early career he worked designing posters for revue and cabaret shows, before graduating to creating film sets. Feld worked in the German film industry during the boom years of the late silent era. He was employed by the German Major studio UFA as head of advertising. He designed the exterior displays of the flagship UFA cinema Ufa-Palast am Zoo for each new premiere.

Following the Nazi rise to power in 1933, the Jewish Feld went into exile. Feld settled in Mandatory Palestine where he briefly owned a nightclub. In 1937 he emigrated to the United States and from the mid-1940s he found regular work in the American film industry. Feld was frequently employed by smaller Hollywood studios such as Eagle-Lion during the post-World War II years, and continued working until 1969.

He died on 25 March 1994 in Santa Monica, California, aged 97.
