This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Note of June, 2005, from Sande Cross:

This information comes from the notes and diaries I found in my home, which was the home of Hazel B Jacoby Harbaur, Toledo, Ohio Artist.  Israel was responsible for organizing The Toledo Independent Artist Club in Toledo in 1932.  He donated his services for the interest of Art and to help the ones that wanted his help.  Elected officers were Paul Cahill, John Blum, Frank Sattick, Dean Sloger, and Hazel Jacoby Harbaur.
They would meet on Sunday mornings for outdoor drawings and Friday evenings to sketch from models.  Each member paid 25 cents to cover rent and models, which were taken off the streets or the local 'flop house' at Erie and Orange Street.

Their interest in Art was so great they all signed up for the Army Camouflage Corp, which would allow them the use of Colonel Baker's office at the Federal Building.  When this club ended in the spring of 1936, there were 57 members.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born near Kiev, Russia, Israel Abramofsky was a city-landscape painter and one of his favorite subjects was villages in Breton, France.

He served in a Siberian prison camp, and in 1929 went to Toledo, Ohio to join two brothers.  He worked as a welder and studied art in the evening.  He was in Paris several times between 1914 and 1925 and studied at the Academie Julian with J.P. Laurens and Lucien Simon.

In 1919, he lived in Washington DC and from 1947 to 1959 was in Toledo, Ohio. Among his exhibition venues were the Society of Independent Artists, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Jewish Museum.
