Joseph Floch (1895-1977) was an Austrian-American artist known for his modernist landscape and figure paintings. Born in Vienna, Austria on November 5, 1895, he studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna (1913-1919) and then in 1926 moved to Paris, where the art dealer B. Weill became his patron. In 1941 he emigrated to New York and ten years later became an American citizen. In 1962 he joined the faculty of the New School of Research.

Floch was an Academician of the National Academy of Design, a member of the Federation of Modern Painters and Sculptors, the American Federation of the Arts and the Salon d'Automne in Paris, France. He received numerous awards and prizes in his career as an artist, including one from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, (1944); the National Institute of Arts and Letters in 1955, the International Exhibition in Paris in 1937 and the National Academy of Design in 1960.

Mr. Floch's work is in the permanent collections of museums around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the de Young Memorial Museum in San Francisco, the Museum of Modern Art and various museums in France and Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
