Glintenkamp was born in 1887. He studied under Robert Henri at the New York School of Art from 1906-8. Dissatisfied with the conservatism of the National Academy, he exhibited with the Independents (1910) and at the Armory Show (1913). This drawing was created two years after the Armory show. He collaborated as an illustrator for the leftist journal The Masses from 1913 - 1917. He then (1917) fled to Mexico City to avoid the draft. There, he worked on the English language section of El Heraldo de Mexico. Between 1917 - 1921 he created woodcuts and sketches of street life in Mexico.
Glintenkamp traveled through Europe between 1921 and 1925. He returned to Mexico in 1926, and sold his prints at The Aztec Land, Mexico City, where many notable artists of the Mexican Renaissance exhibited their work. In Mexico, Glintenkamp counted among his artistic colleagues Diego Rivera.
In the United States, as part of the Ash Can School, his colleagues included John Sloan, William Glackins, Raphael Soyer, and Stuart Davis (with whom he shared a studio). After his return to New York in 1934 Glintenkamp joined the WPA. He signed the petition protesting the destruction of Diego Rivera's Rockefeller Center mural. Glintenkamp was an active member of the American Artists' Congress and ultimately served as president of that organization. The artist died in 1946.
