Louis Lozowick


Biography from the Archives of askART

Born in Ludvinovka in the Ukraine, Louis Lozowick became best known for his lithographs of skyscrapers, constructions, and machinery, a series spanning fifty years.

He attended the Kiev Art School from 1904 to 1906 and emigrated to the United States at age 14.  In New York, he studied for three years at the National Academy of Design with Leon Kroll, attended Ohio State University, and between 1919 and 1924, traveled extensively in Europe including Russia.  From his experiences there with artists, he wrote Modern Russian Art, and later did illustrations for the New Masses and translated for Broom Magazine.

Returning to the United States, he was a muralist for the Public Works Art Project and became involved in the aesthetic of Constructivism, making drawings of machine ornaments.  He also toured the country extensively and did many lithographs from his travels including a 1932 lithograph of the Grand Canyon.

In 1949, he settled in South Orange, New Jersey.
