Ossip Zadkine (Russian/French - 1890-1967)

Ossip Zadkine (July 14, 1890 – November 25, 1967) was a Russian Jewish sculptor and artist.
Born in Vitebsk, Belarus, then Russian Empire, of Jewish and Scottish extraction, Zadkine is primarily known as a sculptor but also produced paintings and graphical works.
After attending art school in London, Zadkine settled in Paris about 1910, where he became part of the new Cubist movement (1914-1925).
Following this period he developed an original style, strongly influenced by primitive arts.
His best-known work is the sculpture "The Destroyed City" (1953), a memorial to the destruction of the center of the Dutch city Rotterdam by the Germans in 1940.
