poland sculptures warsaw

Sculptor, born in Warsaw, Poland. He studied at Warsaw Art Academy, left Poland in 1904, and settled in Paris. His drawings and sculptures after 1906 reveal a simplification of forms and stylization close to Cubism, but also show an affinity with antique sculpture. In 1914 he moved to the USA, taking a studio in New York City. There he produced a number of unusual painted figure sculptures in wood. He became a US citizen in 1927, and from the 1930s worked extensively in ceramics.
