This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Baltimore, Maryland on November 10, 1903, he went to New York City in 1928 and worked as a circus barker, newsstand manager and undertaker. Completely unschooled in the arts, he began painting after seeing a gallery painting on 57th Street.  He said, "I can paint like that" and went to the paint store.  Within a few days, he completed a work which sold.  He is referred to as the city primitive.  Discovered by a collector, he was featured at the Museum of American Folk Art.  At first he painted only buildings but found that more popular were scenes with people.  None of them are ever in a hurry.  There is a sense of peace and joy and civility.
