Solman was born in Russia and emigrated to the U.S. in 1912.
He studied at the National Academy of Design in the 1920s. He
was an founding member of "The Ten," a group of modernists
and abstractionists which included Mark Rothko, Adolph Gottlieb,
Ilya Bolotowsky, and Karl Knaths, who rebelled against prevailing
practices of Regionalism. Later, while the work of the members
of "The Ten" evolved into Abstract Expressionism, Solman
developed a unique style combining expressionism, abstraction,
and traditional figurative painting.
