Sculptor and graphic artist Lovet-Lorski was born in Lithuania in 1894 and studied art at the Imperial Academy of Art in St. Petersburg. In 1920 Lovet-Lorski moved to the United States and settled in New York City. He achieved prominence as a Modernist sculptor and was a major contributor to the American Art Deco style of the 1920s. The female nude became his subject whether in marble or as a lithograph. No other sculptor in America caught the prevailing French Art Deco mood as effectively or poignantly as Lovet-Lorski. He created only two portfolios of lithographs in 1929.
