Julius Bloch was born in Kehl, Germany, and immigrated to the United States with his family in 1893. He settled in Philadelphia and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts under Thomas Anshutz (1851–1912) and at the Barnes Foundation in Merion. He won a Cresson Traveling Scholarship at the Academy in 1911 that enabled him to travel throughout Europe. Influenced by the Ashcan School artists' depictions of urban life and concerned about social issues, Bloch became one of the main proponents of Social Realism in America. He taught at the Pennsylvania Academy from 1947 to 1962.
