Biography Clement Greenberg
Early and seminal art critic of the New York School* of painting, particularly for the work of Jackson Pollock, Clement Greenberg was born to Joseph Greenberg (1884-1977) and Dora Brodwin (Greenberg) (1888-1925), Russian immigrants who successfully operated clothing stores, factories and real estate in the Bronx, NY.
