Born in Poland, Ira Moskowitz came to New York at the age of sixteen. Within a year he received a scholarship to study at the Art Students’’ League under such well known instructors as John Sloan. Moskowitz’s first paintings, etchings and lithographs were exhibited in New York in the early 1930’s. Throughout the 1940’s Moskowitz lived in the American southwest and became a prominent member of the Santa Fe Group of Artists. His original prints and paintings of Navajo life and customs gained for him a strong national reputation.

Ira Moskowitz returned to live in New York after 1947 and continued to produce remarkable works of art. Today his etchings, lithographs and paintings are included in many major collections in Europe, the United States and Israel.
Religion played a vital role in Moskowitz’s art. Isaac Bashevis Singer once said of Moskowitz; “Ira has recaptured the religious view of God and the world in his works.”
