Chana Orloff

BORN: 1888 in Tsaré-Constantinovska, Ukraine
DIED: 1968 in Tel Aviv, Israel

At a young age, Chana Orloff fled persecution with her family to Israel in 1906. It was only when she moved to Paris to pursue an education in dressmaking that her artistic talent was first recognized. After graduating from the Académie Russe in Montparnasse in 1910, Orloff excelled as a portraitist for the French elite. Experimenting with many different materials throughout her career, she is most recognized for her bronze sculptures. Orloff’s art was inspired by both the classicism of the French Academy and artists of the modern age, such as Marc Chagall and Jacques Lipchitz.
