Born in a small Polish town, he came to New York City at age 18. He worked in a factory making women's coats and later became the owner of one of the largest slipper manufacturing businesses in New York. In 1937, ill health forced retirement, so he turned to art. By 1939, two of his paintings were exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art. During his remaining seven years of life, he did over seventy paintings and was, in 1943, given a retrospective by MOMA. His work is described as a charming mixtu (showing 500 of 2287 characters).
