    Lawrence Lebduska grew up in Leipzig, after being born in Baltimore, due to his father’s work for Fleider & Schneider, the East German stained glass manufacturer. He followed a similar pursuit and attended a stained glass school his father’s company operated and where he gained his interest in the use of color and began painting. He moved to New York in 1913 and did mural commissions for Elsie de Wolfe, private stained glass commissions for New York homes and reportedly inspired Abby Aldrich Rockefeller’s folk art collecting.
