So I've been digging them out.
"Gazelle 1911" and "Bather"
Bather (large), 1922-23
Born Druskinkiki, Lithuania, 1891, died Capri, Italy, 1973
Plaster (painted to simulate bronze)
Gift of Yulla H. Lipchitz, UAMA 1979.023.005
"Gertrude Stein, 1934"
Aiming to learn a bit more, I consulted Google Book search and found the The Grove Encyclopedia of American Art, Volume 1, edited by Joan M. Marter:|
"Lipchitz was concerned that some of his sculpture was too abstract, that he had almost lost the sense of the subject, of its humanity", and worked to rectify that, including a "renewed interest in frontaliity, an aspect of Egyptian and archaic sculpture that he greatly admired." (The Grove Encyclopedia of American Art, Volume 1, (Oxford University Press, 2011) page 169)
I may gather all my photos of his artwork and create a gallery for them.
