Michiel Gloeckner was born in Germany in 1915, and was the son of a prominent art collector. At university he first pursued mathematics and art history before studying painting. His academic background would prove to be a continued influence on his work. Following WWII Gloeckner moved to New York City, and successfully showed his work in a number of galleries, including Gallery Seventy Five, Jacques Seligam Galleris and the Gallery of Contemporary Masters. Later in life, Gloeckner withdrew from the city, choosing to live at his country home in North Cornwall, Connecticut until his death in 1989.
