Biography Morris Kantor
Morris Kantor was born in Minsk, Russia in 1896, and moved to New York
in 1906. Early in his career he experimented with Futurism and
Cubism. In 1916 he studied landscape painting with Homer Boss
(1882-1956). In 1928, after returning to New York City from
a year in Paris, Kantor developed a style in which he combined Realism
with Fantasy, often taking the streets of New York as his subject
matter. By 1940, he was focusing on figural studies.
Kantor's work can be found in such institutions as: the Whitney Museum
of American Art, NY; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; the Museum of
Modern Art, NY; the Art Institute of Chicago; and the Pennsylvania
Academy of the Fine Arts.
