Biographical Note

Jsreal Ben Neumann [JBN] was born in Austria in 1887. In 1910, he opened his first book and art store in Berlin, displaying works by such artists as Edvard Munch. By 1922, branches were opened in Bremen, Düsseldorf, and Munich. Neumann moved to New York City in 1923; a year later he would open a gallery, first called J.B. Neumann's Print Room and later the New Art Circle gallery, which was also known as a meeting spot for artists and art lovers. He championed progressive living artists, including Wassily Kandinsky, Max Beckmann, Paul Klee, and Georges Rouault. His wife, Elsa Schmidt, was a well-known artist who worked in mosaics. In addition to being an art dealer, Neumann was an art critic, author, lecturer, and publisher. Periodicals issued by Neumann include Bilderhefte (Berlin, 1920-1922) and Artlover (New York, 1926-1945, 1959). Neumann died in Rye, New York on April 28, 1961.
