Jankel Adler was born near Lodz, Poland into a large, orthodox Jewish family. He was a founder-member of Young Yiddish (a Lodz-based avant-garde artistic group). He worked in Paris in 1937, working with the printmaker Stanley William Hayter at Atelier 17. He soon met Picasso, who became the second major influence on his style. As a Polish Jew and a socialist, Adler left Germany when the Nazis came to power in 1933. He died here in 1949
