Biography  
Berta Margoulies


Expressionist sculptor Berta O'Hare Margoulies was born in 1907 in Lovitz, Poland to a Polish-Jewish family that migrated to Belgium during World War I.  Her wartime experiences shaped much of her humanistic themes of her artwork.  Her father was imprisoned, and she and the others, including three siblings, escaped to Holland and then England where for seven years, she attended the Howard School in Simsbury Park.  The family moved to New York City.  She graduated from Hunter College with Phi Beta Kappa honors in anthropology and languages, and then worked as a French and German translator.
