Martin Baer first attended the Art Institute of Chicago from 1910-1914. and, subsequently, the State Academy in Munich. In 1924, he moved to Paris where he furthered his studies at the Ecole-des-Beaux-Arts and met influential artists including Picasso, Soutine and Kremin. Between 1924 and 1940, Baer made his home in Paris while taking extended painting trips to Algeria, Spain, England, Belgium and Holland. In December of 1940, he left Paris for New York, and settled in Carmel, California. Martin Baer exhibited internationally with success including solo and group exhibitions at the Salon d'Automne and the Ecole-des-Beaux-Arts in Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Palace of the Legion of Honor, the St. Louis Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art among others.

Benezit (Paris 1936), Newhouse Galleries (New York 1928, 1936, 1941). His last one-man show was held at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor (San Francisco 1943). A retrospective entitled "A Memorial Exhibition of Paintings by Martin Baer" was held at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor (San Francisco 1963). In his later years, he was appointed Director of the Carmel Art Association and continued to show regularly with solo exhibitions at museums in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and San Diego. Over the course of a distinguished career, Baer was the recipient of numerous prizes, medals and juried awards.
