Abel Warshawsky attended the Cleveland School of Art and the National Academy of Design in New York before travelling to France in the early 1900’s. In France, the artist established himself with a group of expatriate intellectuals and secured his reputation as a self-pronounced “classical Impressionist.” In recognition of his work the French government invited Warshawsky to exhibit at the Luxembourg Gallery and even named him Chevalier of the Legion of Honor. The artist left France at the outbreak of World War II to settle in Monterey, California, where he was active in the Carmel Art Association up until his death in 1962.
