Little is known about Jussuff Abbo’s history or artistic life. He was born in Palestine, died in London, and moved to Germany at some point during his career. Exhibition records list Abbo as having participated in exhibitions in major cities, such as Berlin, Frankfurt, and Dresden, during the late 1910s and 1920s. He might have been active in Germany only in those years; after 1928 his name does not appear.
