Alexander Archipenko Alexander Archipenko - Biography

Alexander Archipenko counts among the most prominent sculptors of the 20th century. Born in Kiev in 1887, Alexander Archipenko moved to the bustling artists metropolis Paris in 1908, where he soon came into contact with Cubist circles. In this environment Alexander Archipenko would make innovative sculptures, by taking on stylistic principles of Cubism - decomposition of forms and shift of perspectives - in sculpting. The artist's preferred subject was the human body, which, masterly decomposed and in filigree motions, opened into space. The same ideas regarding form and motif can be observed in Alexander Archipenko' graphic oeuvres.
Works by Alexander Archipenko, which were shown in ground-breaking exhibitions in the artist's lifetime, are in possession of renowned museums all over the world. Up until today the artist has been acknowledged in numerous comprehensive retrospectives, such as in the Zabriskie Gallery in New York or the 'Städtische Kunsthalle' Mannheim.
