Preston Dickinson began his career in New York City, studying at the Arts Students League from 1906 to 1910 with artists George Bellows and Ernest Lawson.

Influenced by Cubism and Cézanne during his time spent in Paris from 1915 to 1919, he continued to depict industrial subjects while incorporating these influences.
