This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Sam Grodensky (1894-1974) became a full time artist in 1956, after he had closed his Brooklyn, New York, business and moved to Coral Gables, Florida.  Experiences and inspirations of a life time were the themes of a prolific artist, who had no time to waste.

Some of his work centers around Jewish themes drawn from memories of his Brooklyn Orthodox Jewish home and neighborhood.  Other work seems to have been inspired by the French Impressionists or by the sunny landscape of South Florida.

Following three years of study with Miami artist Eugene Massin, Grodensky developed his own themes and style.  His paintings evolved from a highly detailed classical realist style into a more free-flowing impressionist style.  

The youngest of 11 children, Grodensky had always planned to join his father in his yarn and wool business, but studied art at the National Academy of Design at his father's insistence. Following his Army service in World War I, Grodensky returned to Brooklyn to his father's business. An easel always stood in the back of the store and the slow days of the Depression gave him more time to devote to what had become his genuine satisfaction in life.

Beginning with local Florida exhibitions in 1958, Grodensky's work traveled throughout the United States winning first prizes in numerous shows.  His work was displayed at the Lowe Art Gallery in Coral Gables, the Park Avenue Synagogue in New York, the Telshe Yeshiva in Cleveland and Temple Judea in Coral Gables. In 1967 he began creating sculptures but abandoned the pursuit upon the advice of his doctors.
