Hanno Mott for Himself and the Lipchitz Family.
Lipchitz first gained prominence as a sculptor in the 1910s for his work in a cubist vein. In the mid-1920s he switched from strict geometric to a freer form of expression and more curvilinear style. He drew abundantly, always in connection with his sculpture.
