Abraham Walkowitz (March 28, 1878, Tyumen, Russia - January 27, 1965, New York City, EUA) was a Russian-American painter grouped in with early American Modernists working in the Modernist style.
While never attaining the same level of fame as his contemporaries, Walkowitz' close relationship with the 291 Gallery and Alfred Stieglitz placed him at the center of the modernist movement.
His early abstract cityscapes and collection of over 5,000 drawings of Isadora Duncan also remain significant art historical records.
