Born in Paris, Andrew Dasburg (1887-1979) was brought to the United States at the age of five. He studied at the Art Students League with Kenyon Cox and others, and had additional instruction from Robert Henri. In 1909 Dasburg returned to Paris, where he was much interested in the work of Matisse and C├ęzanne. Returning to the United States two years later, he taught at the Art Students League. He had two Cubist paintings and one piece of sculpture (the only one he ever produced) in the New York Armory Show of 1913, thus establishing his importance as one of the earliest American Modernists.
