Chaim Gross (1904-1991)

From 1963 until his death, the renowned
American sculptor Chaim Gross lived and
worked here. Born in the Carpathian
Mountains of Eastern Europe, Gross came to
New York City in 1921 and emerged as a
pioneer of the direct carving method in
sculpture. He is best known for his joyous
wood and stone pieces that celebrate the
human form. His art can be found in gardens
and plazas throughout Manhattan.
