This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Irving Trabich (1915 - 2007)
Irving Trabich was born on April 28, 1915 in New York City.  He went to City College of N.Y. to become an accountant, but at 19 became an artist instead.  His mother, Bertha Trabich, was also an artist.  She was a primitive painter, whose  works are in the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art.
Mr. Trabich served in the Army as a draftsman and cartographer during World War II achieving the rank of Master Sergeant.
As a young man Mr. Trabich studied at the Arts Students League, the National Academy of Design, Pratt Institute, New York School of Fine & Applied Art and Columbia University.  He drew and painted throughout his life, winning many awards.  His work was featured in numerous exhibitions, the most recent one in 2003 at the PLI Gallery in New York City.
Mr. Trabich worked for 35 years in the cosmetics and advertising industry in New York.  He began as an artist, later becoming an art director and finally Director of Creative Services working on the design and development of new products.  He worked for Hazel Bishop, Lanolin Plus and finally Yardley of London.  All the while, in his spare time he painted and taught art to children on Saturday mornings.
After Mr. Trabich and his wife retired and moved to Miami in 1970, he went back to work teaching painting and lecturing on art in Dade County Senior High School and Adult Education Centers.  He also taught painting aboard the QE2 and other ships of the Cunard Cruise Lines.  He taught hundreds of adult men and women how to paint.
Mr. Trabich's life work was painting and his passion was art.  An iconoclast to the core, he had a completely unique perspective on everything and was never shy about speaking his mind.
Irving Trabich was married to Sara for 67 years and they had two children.  He died on October 15, 2007 at the age of 92.
