Biography




Born in Weissenberg, Germany, he grew up in Munich, where he studied architecture before taking up painting. Between 1904 and 1914 he lived in Paris, experimenting with abstract painting. In 1915 he returned to Munich, setting up an academy of painting that he directed until 1931, which is when he went to live in the United States.
