"Morton Dimondstein's studies at the American Artists School and the Art Students League in New York City were interrupted by World War II. After the war Dimondstein continued his studies at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. After winning a competition for a solo exhibition show at the ACA Gallery in New York, he settled in Mexico City and became a member of the Taller de Grafica Popular.
In 1960 Dimondstein moved to Rome in 1960 where he shared a studio with sculptor Jack Zajac. His woodcuts and sculptures were exhibited extensively in Rome, Milan and Florence. In 1964 he returned to Los Angeles, teaching at the University of Southern California. In 1972 he gave up teaching to concentrate on his own art. At the age of 80 he succumbed to Parkinson's disease.
His work is included in public collections such as the Library of Congress, the Seattle Art Museum, The World Bank (Washington, DC) as well as the Pushkin State Museum." excerpted from Askart.com
