Gaston Lachaise: Immigrant in Greenwich Village

Slide Lecture given by Paula Hornbostel as part of the
Renee & Chaim Gross Foundation’s Artists & Immigrants series 

Wednesday, October 20th, 2021 6pm EDT

He left his homeland in pursuit of a woman who would become the impetus and inspiration of his life’s work. Rubbing shoulders with the Modernist artists and writers of Greenwich Village, amidst rallies for suffrage, Lachaise sculpted portraits and commissions, while nurturing his private vision of the archetypal woman. Pushing the boundaries of art from the roaring twenties through the Great Depression, Lachaise aimed to express “the glorification of the human being, of the human body, of the human spirit, with all that there is a daring, of magnificence, of significance.”

The event is free but registration is required.
