Born in Vienna, Austria in 1892, itinerant artist Leon Dolice spent his late teens and early twenties traveling through the capital cities of Europe studying the works of the Masters. Dolice immigrated to America in 1920, where he befriended artists George Luks and Herb Roth. Dolice devoted his time chronicling New York City's architecture, back streets and dock scenes. He traveled and worked in Washington DC, Baltimore, Chicago and Philadelphia, but settled back in New York's bohemian Greenwich Village, where he felt most at home.
