Artistic Focus Whether created from marble, granite, slate, onyx, stone, jade, lava or metals, Boris Lovet-Lorski’s sculptures are known for their technical virtuosity and their highly polished surfaces. His pieces were often romantic in style, with highly decorative qualities and a classic stylization of the human body that made them seem grander and "more real than real life." His torsos and female figures possess an abstract quality seldom seen in the sculpture of his time, and he is also known for sculptures that offer images of exotic cultures, and for symbolic and imaginary figures whose design was based on ancient mythology and pagan rituals.
• Boris Lovet-Lorski presented his first solo exhibition
in Boston, just months after arriving in America in 1920. He worked for
several years in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, before establishing a residence
in New York City.
