Hide Profile

Martin Birnbaum was born in Hungary, but brought to America as a child and naturalized. He studied at City College of New York and Columbia, and admitted to the bar, joined the law firm of Scott & Fowles. He became an important art collector and dealer, and was the first to show Paul Klee, Edvard Munch, and other European artists in America. An accomplished and eclectic man of great personal charm, he also translated poetry, played the violin, and wrote numerous brochures and biographies about art and artists.
