Biography Abraham Wolfe Davidson
Abraham Wolfe Davidson (1903-1981)
He was born in the province of Vitebsk in Russia. When he was eleven, his parents planned to escape increasing oppression against Jews in Russia by joining his four older brothers who already were in the United States. Their departure was delayed by World War I and the Russian Revolution.
Davidson's father disappeared and the family suffered through famine and other hardships, although Davidson was able to study for a short while at the Russian National Art School in Vitebsk. In 1922, a brother smuggled Davidson and his mother out of Russia. They joined his brothers in Greenville, South Carolina where Davidson continued his sculpture work and studied English.
