Well known figure of the Ecole de Paris, Leon Weissberg was born in Galicia, Autria in 1895.

He moved to Paris in 1923. In 1924 he began exhibiting in the Salons and at the Sacre du Printemps gallery with Menkès, Aberdam and Weingart, in the Bonaparte and Zak galleris with Epstein, Hayden, Mané-Katz, Soutine, Kikoïne, not to mention Derain and Despiau. His work was supported by the dealers Leopold Zborowski and Wladimir Raykis.

Worshipped by influent art critics (Jean-Marie Dunoyer, Waldémar George), his work was exhibited in galeries and museums.

Deported from France, because he was Jewish, to the nazi camp of Maïdanek in Poland on March 11, 1943, he died two days after his arrival. His work was partly destructed and mostly scattered.

His moving portraits of women and litle girls, circus and still life paintings are now to be rediscovered.
