"Supplication," Art Deco Sculpture from Archipenko's Ceramic School, Woodstock

About

One of the rarest and most important sculptures eminating from the ARKO ceramic school established by Alexander Archipenko in Woodstock, New York, this stylized group of praying figures was created by Lu Duble. Archipenko studied in Kiev and Paris and established an art school in Berlin, and after immigrating to America in 1923, he continued to be an infatigable teacher and entrepreneur, establishing schools in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. Lu Duble was perhaps his most prominent student at ARKO, and her work was exhibited in Pittsburgh in 1929, along with the work of other ARKO students.
