Display caption

This is a plaster cast dating from 1964, made from the moulds of bronze casts made at the same time. Lipchitz referred to it as 'a small sketch' and intended it as a study for a larger Cubist sculpture. Through his friendship with Rivera, Picasso and Gris, Lipchitz participated in the Cubist movement after 1914. He made low-reliefs and sculptures in the round. These included many figures, like those in this gallery, and also clowns, musicians and still lifes.
