Morris Ben Newman

Morris Ben Newman (1883-1980), from Cleveland, OH, was by all accounts an eccentric man who claimed to have been born in Ethiopia of royal ancestry, a falashal Jew (black descendants of one of the Lost Tribes of Israel), as well as a psychic and an astral traveller. He used house paints as well as artist's paints and painted on a variety of surfaces. His work was included in the 1996 Birmingham Museum of Art show of the Gitter Collection and is featured in the catalog from the show, titled "Pictured In My Mind."
