Born in Moscow, Russia on 6 January 1882, the Baylinson family moved to the United States around 1900. Baylinson studied at the Art Students League of New York the National Academy of Design and the New York School of Art. While at the New York School of Art he trained under Robert Henri and alongside students such as Edward Hopper, Rockwell Kent, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Glenn Coleman, Eugene Speicher, and Patrick Henry Bruce. He also studied under Homer Boss.
He was secretary for the Society of Independent Artists from 1918-1934, and showed his work at the Society's shows from his joining in 1917 until 1942. Baylinson was an instructor of drawing and painting at the Art Students League from 1931-1933. In early 1931 a fire destroyed almost twenty years of work related to Baylinson's career. When he began painting after the fire his style had evolved into representational art.
