Cubist Wood Sculpture of a Nude by Russian American Sculptor Boris Blai, 1930s
By Boris Blai
Located in Philadelphia, PA
A carved wooden cubist sculpture of a seated nude woman by Boris Blai (1893-1985). This carving likely dates to the 1920s-1930s (during Blai's time in Philadelphia). Most likely constructed of sections of laminated basswood stained with a dark stain, it has an integral plinth with button feet and a carved signature the base. The sharp angular lines of the body are starkly contrasted by the soft-edged, almost nondescript depiction of the head and face. Blai was born in Russia and studied in academies in St. Petersburg, Paris, and eventually under Auguste Rodin.
