This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Newport, KY on July 12, 1913.  Fromer spent his childhood in NYC where he had a few art classes, but was essentially a self-taught artist.  During the 1930s he designed dam dioramas for the
TVA as a WPA artist for the National Park Service.  He came to San Francisco in 1938 to design dioramas for the Federal Bldg at the GGIE and, after a few years in New Mexico and the Midwest, he returned to the San Francisco Bay area in 1950 where he remained.  For 13 years he served as chair of the San Francisco Graphic Arts Workshop and was secretary of Affiliated Art Groups of the Bay Area.  He continued painting at his home in Mill Valley, CA until his demise on Jan. 9, 1994.  Working in acrylic and charcoal, his socially-conscious art aimed at educating working people through simple but powerful motifs.
