Los Angeles painter Hans Burkhardt is a classic American-immigrant success story. Born in Basel, Switzerland, orphaned at 6, he had a childhood that makes "Oliver Twist" sound like a picnic. Always hungry in a nasty city orphanage, he worked at menial jobs from dawn to dusk earning miserly wages he never received. Wednesday he will be honored in New York with the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters' Jimmy Ernst Award.
