Happy Birthday Jacques Lipchitz!! Lithuanian born sculptor, in 1891, Lipchitz worked in the Cubist style. His father was a building contractor, but after working with him for a time, he moved with his mother to Paris. He was greatly influenced by Auguste Rodin, Symbolist/Impressionist sculptor. Lipchitz methodically de-constructed the human figure to then re-assemble in a new and enlightening way. Figure (1926-30) represents one of the few examples of 20th century monumental sculpture. Created from bronze, the sculpture stands 7’1” high and is installed at the Guggenheim Museum, in New York.
