ABOUT THE ARTIST Sculptor, graphic artist, and painter, Boris Lovet-Lorski was born in Lithuania in 1894 and studied at the Academy of Art in St. Petersburg, Russia, from 1914-1916. He immigrated to Boston in 1920 and later moved to New York City, where he lived for most of his life, with periods in Paris (1926-1932) and Los Angeles (1932-1934). Through his exposure to traditional and modernist international art movements, he developed a unique oeuvre informed by ancient mythology and classical romanticism, the cubist art of Braque and Picasso, and the refined primitivism of Brancusi’s sculpture. His graphic works are distinguished by his idealized, allegorical subjects, rendered in a dramatic, highly stylized, futurist aesthetic. Lovet-Lorski’s sculptures received international acclaim, and by 1929 he was maintaining studios in New York, Rome, and Paris, and exhibiting in America, South America, and Europe. He was awarded the French Legion of Honor in 1950. Lovet-Lorski’s work is held in the collections of the Luxembourg Museum, Paris; Petit Palais, Paris; Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; British Museum, London; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; San Diego Fine Arts Society; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Seattle Art Museum; San Francisco Museum of Fine Arts; Boston University; and Columbia University.
