Max Weber was born in Bialystork, then part of Russian empire, and emigrated to America at the age of 10. After studying art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, under Arthur Wesley Dow, Weber saved enough money to travel to Paris and study. There, he acquainted himself with the work of modernist artists, such as Henri Rousseau, Matisse, and Pablo Picasso. In 1909, Weber returned to New York in order to introduce cubism to American. Today, he is considered one of the most significant American cubists of his time. In 1930, the Museum of Modern Art held a retrospective of his work, the first solo exhibition of an American artist at that museum. While his earlier works were in the style of cubism, his later works showed an interest in Jewish themes.
