About the Artist
The third son of a baker in Birnbaum, Leo Lesser Ury moved to Berlin with his family after his father died. His studies at the Kunstakademie in Dusseldorf began in 1879. Additional art schools were attended elsewhere in Europe (Paris. Brussels, Antwerp, Stuttgart and Karlsruhe and Munich). One marker in his art career was when he joined the Munich Secession in 1893.
In 1914 Ury began working extensively in the graphic medium. Thanks to some encouragement from Lovis Corinth, Ury had his first exhibition with the Berlin Secession the following year. In 1916 he was given a successful retrospective featuring 80 of his works. Another exhibition given in 1922 presented 150 of his paintings to coincide with his 60th birthday.
