Lee Lawrie, Architectural Sculptor

Lee Lawrie was one of the finest sculptors of the first quarter of the twentieth century, and a major force in the Art Deco of the period. He is particularly connected with some of Ralph Adams Cram and Bertram Goodhue's various works, having sculpted the masterful reredos of St. Thomas Church and some of the exterior work on St. Vincent Ferrer, both in New York. Largely and unjustifiably neglected by scholars until recently, he finally has his own group, so go have a look round.
