Max Weber
 

(b Belostok, Russia, 18 April 1881; d Great Neck, NY, 4 Oct 1961).

 American painter, printmaker, sculptor and writer of Russian birth. He was born of Orthodox Jewish parents and in 1891 emigrated with his family to America. After settling in Brooklyn, NY, Weber attended the Pratt Institute (1898–1900), where he studied art theory and design under Arthur Wesley Dow (1857–1922). Dow’s extensive knowledge of European and Far Eastern art history, together with his theories of composition, made a lasting impression on Weber. Weber was in Paris from 1905 to 1908 and studied briefly at the Académie Julian. He developed a close friendship with Henri Rousseau and helped to organize a class with Henri Matisse as its instructor. Visits to the ethnographic collections in the Trocadéro and other Parisian museums extended his sensitivity to non-Western art, while travels through Spain, Italy and the Netherlands broadened his knowledge of the Old Masters.
