Biography   John Kaufman


The following was submitted by Ingrid Fox:

I am Ernest Oscar Hubert's granddaughter who was a Swiss appraiser,  working in NYC.  He was also a close friend of Kaufman's. Kaufman's studio was in Carnegie Hall. The artist was tried for heresy in 1919 or 1920 at the Jefferson Courthouse, now the Jefferson Library in Greenwich Village. He had painted a scene of the wedding at Cana, depicting Christ surrounded by NYC politicians. He was acquitted but left the country and returned to Europe.

I have a copy of a letter my grandfather wrote to him in 1949, so presumably, he died after this in Europe and he did not die in 1929, as often noted.
