In 1912 he studied at the National Academy of Design under Leon Kroll and Emil Carlsen. In Berlin in 1920 he became friends with Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, El Lissitsky, and the avant-garde Russian artists affiliated with the Novembergruppe. After his return to the United States, Lozowick began to treat socially relevant themes in the 1930s, but he is chiefly known for his stark, geometrically formulated lithographs of urban cityscapes and industrial views.
