Comments: His Mexican series of horses and riders is almost the only departure from his favorite theme: women, painted in rhythmic and delicate manner. Born Julius Pincas, he later adopted the name under which all his paintings are known. In 1914 he came to the U.S. to escape military service in France, and spent the next six years traveling FL, LA, NC, SC, TX, and the southwestern U.S. and Cuba. In 1920 he became a U.S. citizen, living in Brooklyn. He returned to Paris permanently, and on the eve of a prestigious solo show committed suicide by slitting his wrists and hanging himself.
