Chaim GrossChaim Gross, sculptor, artist, and teacher, was born March 1904 in the Carpathian Mts. of Austria. He was the youngest of ten children of Moses Gross, a lumber merchant. After a turbulent nomadic existence caused by World War I, Chaim, during 1921 at age 17, immigrated to New York City. This was accomplished with the aid of a brother, Naftoli, who had come to America in 1914.

Between 1922 and 1926, Gross studied sculpture and painting at the Beaux- Arts Institute of Design, attending evening classes and working during the day. It was during this period of time, he met Raphael Soyer, who was to become his lifelong friend.
