Noted for his surrealist- tinged figuration called 'magic realism', Peter Blume remained outside any clearly defined current of American art, and throughout his sixty year career rarely veered from the quirky narrative style he developed in his twenties.  Born in Smorgon, Russia, Peter Blume's parents emigrated to the United States in 1911, and settled in Brooklyn, New York, around 1912.  Blume's father worked in the clothing trade as a 'marker', laying out patterns on fabric.(showing 500 of 4278 characters).
