This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted May 2005, is from Louis Marano, who wrote: "I am in possession (minus its cover) of the February, 1945, issue of Ladies Home Journal -- Vol. LXII, No. 2. The Contents page has a photo of Kopf in front of a painting of a black man. Below the photo is the text:

Maxim Kopf, who painted our cover design, says, "I never wanted to be anything but a painter, an ambition in which I received no encouragement whatever from my family. But my father finally allowed me to enter the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, whose entrance examinations I had already secretly taken and passed. During the last war I fought in a Czech regiment (with little enthusiasm but some honor) for His Majesty's Austro-Hungarian Empire. I got out of it more dead than alive, and His Majesty's Empire did not get out of it at all. But Czechoslovakia was born, so I went happily home to Prague and became a citizen.

Although the war had made me restless and I traveled extensively, I might have settled down except for Hitler, who set me moving again, this time through prisons and concentration camps. Eventually I reached America, and here, at the age of fifty-two, I found what I had been looking for all my life. This land will one day create an art as great as the country itself. It will not be feverish, eccentric and sensational, but affirmative and grand. I only regret I shall not live long enough to paint all I want to paint, or as well as I want to paint."
