Born in 1890 in Tcherikov, Belorussia, Léon Indenbaum first began to working in wood as an adolescent, subsequently receiving a grant to study at the Fine Art School in Odessa.  He moved to Paris in 1911 where he took a studio in La Ruche and became acquainted with Foujita, Zadkine, Soutine, Kremègne, Chagall and Modigliani with whom he shared a flat and who painted his portrait. 

He first exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants in 1912 and was later one of the founders of the Groupe de Neuf, which exhibited its work at the Vendôme Gallery in 1963.  In 1968 Indenbaum was granted the Wildenstein Prize by L'Institut de France.
