William Zorach by Man Ray

WILLIAM ZORACH (1889 1966)

By the time the Luthuanian born, American bred artist's name was done being Anglesized, the poor kid had been called eveything from Zorach Gorfinkel to Zorach Finkelstein before he was formally known as the man, William Zorach. He studied art in Cleveland and New York before heading to Paris in 1910 where he would meet his lifelong partner, fellow artist Marguerite Thompson. They wed overseas on December 24, 1912 before fleeing France as WWI engulfed Europe.

Both of their cubist/fauvist stylings were hung at the 1913 Armory Show in New York where they had become part of the Greenwich Village circle that would soon migrate to Provincetown for summers.

In the summert of 1916k he printed the original Provincetown Playhouse playbills.

William would soon become more preoccupied with sculpting and began spending an absorbanant amount of time on the Maine seacoast until his death in Bar Harbor.
