This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Hungary, George Gach, the son of sculptor Stephen Gach (1880-1962), was noted for sculpture, impressionist painting and teaching. His subjects included animals, people, florals, nudes, cowboys, sports and scenes of Long Island, Bermuda, Mexico, Florida and upstate New York. Among his sculpture subjects are portrait busts of prime ministers, governors, corporate presidents and soccer stars.

He served as a commercial pilot from 1939 to 1952. and in 1944, was shot down and given up as dead. He was also in prisoner of war camps twice during World War II and then in 1947, was imprisoned by the communists in Hungary.

Gach graduated form the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest in 1952, and then immigrated to the United States. He located his studio in Roslyn Heights Long Island, and at one point set a goal of completing one sculpture a week. During his lifetime, he created over 1400 award-winning bronze sculptures and 997 paintings between 1952 and 1996. Most of his sculptures are table sized and his paintings are 24 X 20 inches.

He received 50 awards including from the National Sculpture Society, and his students numbered over 700. In his honor, the National Sculpture Society has a George Gach Prize for competition entrants.
