Biography   Mischa (Maurice) Askenazy


Born near Odessa, Russia on Feb. 22, 1888.  At age four Askenazy (né Ashkenazy) arrived in NYC where he spent his childhood.  Opting for an art career, he studied at the NAD under Jones, Volk, and Maynard; upon winning a scholarship, he traveled in France and Italy for two years.  During the 1920s he averaged $50,000 per year as a portraitist to the wealthy.  A portrait commission brought him to Montecito, CA in 1925 and, charmed by the climate, he decided to settle in Los Angeles.  He painted there until his demise on July 13, 1961.  His works, which show the influence of Cézanne, include portraits, figure studies, still lifes, and landscapes.
