    Initially trained as a lithographer, Edmund Adler later attended the Vienna Academy where he received the Kenyon Traveling Scholarship in 1903. During World War I (1914-1918), he was a prisoner of war in Siberia.

His realistic portrayals of peasant children are amongst the most highly collected of his works.
