This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Abraham Levin (1880-1957)

Born in Lithuania in 1880, he emigrated to the United States and found employment in the garment industry.  He started making pencil sketches and, at the age of 57, turned to painting.  Encouraged by his teacher at a WPA art class in the Bronx community where he lived, he brought his work to the Uptown Gallery in Manhattan, which gave him his first show in 1941.  Several exhibitions at the Galerie St. Etienne followed.  The New York Times called his first exhibition “a thrilling experience.”

"Critics responded strongly to the elements of his intuitive style that evoked Cezanne, Braque and Chagall."  The Amalgamated Clothing Workers Union granted him a $25-a-week stipend that enabled him to paint full time but in the end, Levin was forced to return to his old garment-industry job.
