A printmaker and painter in abstract style who used wide brushmarks, Henry Kallem was born in Philadelphia.
His father was Morris Kallem, a portrait painter, with whom he studied, and his brother was sculptor Herbert Kallem.
Henry Kallem's studio was in New York City, and he and his associates were a part of a group of modernists who called themselves 'the 28th Street Group of Modernists' because they hung around the Henry and David Rothman Frame Shop on 28th Street.
Kallem and others of this group also spent much time in the summers painting in Provincetown and Monhegan Island.
He was a member of the National Society of Painters in Casein and exhibited widely including at the Pennsylvania Academy, the 1939 New York World's Fair, and the Pepsi Cola Exhibition of 1947, where he won first prize for his painting Country Tenement.
This award caused consternation because of his abstract style, and Life magazine, August 1948, ran an article referencing the award with the headline "Freak Painting Prizes".
Kallem was a teacher in his studio, in a private school in Roslyn, New York, and at the New York City YWCA.
