Road of Exile

Road of Exile


Jacques Lipchitz

(French, born in Lithuania, 1891–1973)

Etching and aquatint

John L. Severance Fund 1995.212



Atelier 17 offered printmaking opportunities for many artists who were already working in other media. For example, famed modernist sculptor Lipchitz, who fled to the United States when Nazi troops occupied Paris, created a small corpus of seven prints while taking courses with Stanley William Hayter in New York. This example refers specifically to Lipchitz’s feelings of displacement as a temporary immigrant to these shores.
