This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted May 2005, is from Linda Stamm of Winter Associates. Her source is information from papers found in the estate of the artist.

Michiel Gloeckner, known for his highly refined, balanced abstract, geometric style derived from natural forms, was the son of a well-known art collector. He graduated from the University of Dresden with a degree in mathematics and art history. He received a degree from the Royal Academy of Dresden where he studied under Otto Dix. Paul Klee also influenced Gloeckner's work.

After WWII Gloeckner moved to New York City. He continued to maintain a studio in New York at 115 East 70th Street, even after he moved to West Cornwall, Connecticut where he spent the later years of his life.
