Natan Isaevich Altman was born to a family of tradesman. In 1902–1907 he studied at Odessa School of Arts under K. Kostandi and G. A. Ladyzhensky, but left it later being dissatisfied with teaching. He returned to Vinnytsia and began to paint independently. In 1910 he moved to Paris, studied in different studios, where he learnt new art schools of that time, including cubism.

In 1906 when he was still a student, Altman exposed his works for the first time. In 1910 he participated in the exhibition of the Society of South Russian Artists in Odessa, in 1911 at the Salon of the National Society of Fine Arts in Paris. He was a member of groups Mir Iskusstva (“World of Art”, 1913, 1915, 1916), the Union of Youth (1913, 1914), 0,10 (1915–1916), Bubnovy Valet (“Jack of Diamonds”, 1916).

Cubistic works of Altman brought fame to the painter. In 1912 he settled in St. Petersburg. He painted the portrait of poetess A. A. Akhmatova (1914, the State Russian Museum), which became afterwards very famous; sculptural Self-portrait (1916); cycle Jewish drawings after the gravestone reliefs (1914). In 1916 he was engaged in theatre design, he designed the play The Miracle of Saint Antony by M. Maeterlinck staged at Literary and Artistic cabaret theatre Comedians’ Halt (“Prival Comediantov”) in Petrograd.

Altman was one of the founders of the Jewish Society for the Encouragement of Artists.

After the October Revolution, Altman as well as a lot of painters of the left movement began tireless public activity. In 1918–1921 he was at the head of easel painting workshop at Petrograd State Free Art Studios (PGSKhUM) — the Higher Art Technical Institute (VKhUTEIN), where he created a number of sculptures. He was engaged in commercial art, designed performance of stage director N. N. Evreinov. The performance was arranged on the occasion of the first anniversary of October Revolution.
