Coming to America: Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach, 1914 - 1945

October 14, 2017 – January 7, 2018 Back


The sculptures of Gaston Lachaise, Robert Laurent, Elie Nadelman and William Zorach embody the vitality and vision of four modern artists who—arriving as immigrants in the United States from the growing turbulence of pre-war Europe—responded to the challenges and excitement of American life with extraordinary creativity. Through over 60 sculptures and a select group of drawings, the exhibition reveals their common artistic sources—ranging from ancient statuary to American popular and folk culture, while at the same time reveling in their stylistic individuality. Coming to America is a rare opportunity to explore the works of four major masters who redefined the expressive qualities of the human form in the modern age.

This exhibition is organized by the Portland Museum of Art, Maine and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art.
