Epstein was born in Lodz, Poland in 1892. He began painting in his home town, working in a collective workshop of local Jewish painters. He left for Munich to study at the Academy of Art, and then settled in Paris in 1931. He became friendly with Maurice Utrillo and met many other contemporary Parisian artists. He was also associated with many of the Jewish artists who lived in Paris, sharing their concern for Jewish art. Epstein's work, lavishly and vividly painted, depicts landscapes, peasants working in the fields, fishermen at work, interiors, portraits, and nudes. He exhibited both at the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Tuileries. In 1944, Epstein was interned in the Drancy concentration camp and was deported
to Auschwitz. A retrospective exhibition of Epstein's work was held in Paris in 1946.
