Biography:
Born in Moscow, Alexander Archipenko moved to Paris in 1908 where he first encountered the Cubist movement through his interaction with Leger. He soon adopted the movementís style, becoming one of its leading sculptors. His reputation grew in France and across Europe, notably Germany before World War I interrupted his career. In 1921, he re-entered the art scene with a successful solo exhibition in the United States. Archipenko spent the following two years in Berlin before moving to the United States, gaining citizenship in 1928. He taught across the country, but mainly in New York City where he ran a sculpture school from 1939 until his death in 1964.
