This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information is from Allan Kleban, great nephew of the artist.

Jerome J. Glickman (1890  -1930) “Jerry” was born in what later became Lithuania, son of Jonah Joseph Glickman and Sarah Hannah (nee Koplowitz) Glickman.  He came to the U.S with his father around 1901. He was the oldest of five children; the only son (in age order: Jerry, Esther, Bessie, Anabele, and Marcia). Showing an ability as an artist, he attended the Art Students League in New York City, possibly during l9l6-1917, where he became a friend of a fellow student, Ben Shahn. He worked for a time in Washington, D.C. as an engraver, possibly with the U.S Treasury Department. He was painting during the 20’s, in oils, but he has several etchings of people in his portfolio.

A large painting of his mother, Mother Glickman,  hung in an exhibit at the Montclair, N.J. Art Museum in the late 20’s.  

His niece (my mother), June Rieur Kleban wrote that, “As a young man, he was a man-about-town. Informal pictures with his friends indicated a good social life, with evidences of his spirited sense of fun and fondness for his family. He never married. When he came to visit, he used to entertain us—especially me and my younger brother, Renan, by sitting in our play rocker and getting stuck—then walking around with the chair on his behind.  That is really all I can remember of him (personally).”  

She further wrote that, “He had quite a body of work, which he gave to my mother (Esther), a few of which she hung.  I remember, as a pre-teen, being embarrassed by a picture of emaciated naked men in the woods (reminiscent of a painting by (Renoir?) which I recently  saw in an exhibit in Philadelphia.  Mom had it hanging over the fireplace for years.  There were several others in my grandmother’s home, among them one of my grandfather.  Jack (June’s older brother) may still have it in his house, but we’ve not been able to find it.  At least Jack had taken a good picture of it.  Aunt Anabele wanted it, but when she died, it was not among her things.

Jerry was an unknown sufferer of a brain tumor (and later a spinal infection, according to his obituary), and as a frequent visitor, he would sit on the back patio painting the scenery.  He fell once, and my mother had a hard time picking him up.

During the early part of the 1930s Depression, we prepared to move from one house in Upper Montclair (on Grove Street) to another on Wildwood Avenue.  Mom stored the paintings temporarily in our garage, but they were all stolen while we were awaiting moving day.  As far as I can figure, we have only seven paintings in Jack’s and my family’s collection.  He had painted two views of the farmhouse where Esther and her husband Jacques lived for a few years early in 1920, in Flagtown, N.J., then focused on the Bellaire Farm directly behind the later (Wildwood Avenue) home of his sister and brother-in-law in Upper Montclair before 1930.”

Jerry was part of the NYSIA and either took classes with that group, or possibly taught.  He sometimes sat in on the Figure Life class in the Art School of the N.Y. Evening High School for Men (from a Picture labeled 1918, but noted as 1913) as a friend of the Instructor A. Bogdanore.  (see photo at website:

There is evidence from the records of the Society of Independent Artists (SIA) left by the Sloan family with the Delaware Art Museum, that Jerry was an on-again, off-again member of the SIA and may once have exhibited a painting or two at their annual show in the 1920's.  (There was a possibly erroneous mention of a Jerome J. Glickman who was still alive in 1950 that threw me off, a possibly printing error.)  When I asked Mom about Jerry living in Brooklyn, she said he lived on Hart Street and that turned out to be the address listed in the 1926 and 1929 listing of the SIA membership.  Mom said he did not have a middle initial, but he might have added it, as was the custom.  The reason I went to the Delaware Art Museum was to research two photographs of my great uncle Jerry as the instructor of the class of '21-'22 of the NYSIA.  I first thought NYSIA was the SIA, but the SIA did not have a school. Apparently, there were many Art Schools popping up in NYC at that time.  I am not sure what NYSIA stood for, maybe the New York School for Independent Artists?

The paintings that still exist to our knowledge include Mother Glickman,  one my mother called September Morn (a darker variation on September Morn by Paul Chabas (one of Jerry’s younger sisters, Bessie, might have been the model), a Castle, a Bridge, and a still life, plus the two of the Farmstead where June was born, in Flagtown, N.J.

At the time of his death (age 40), according to an NY or possibly Brooklyn obituary, Jerry Glickman was living at “No. 326 Hart St., Brooklyn, and maintained a studio at No. 125 Fulton St. Manhattan.” He died on January 12, 1930 at the Post Graduate Hospital in NYC where he had been for a fews days, “suffering from a spinal infection”.  The Obituary states that he was born in Russia, and that his portrait work was often exhibited in the New York City area.
