LeeLawrie.com is a compendium created to identify, catalog and recognize the significant contribution to American Art in the 20th Century, that has either been missed or ignored by the traditional academic, historic and artistic communities.

Lee Oskar Lawrie was a tremendously prolific American architectural sculptor who collaborated with Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue from 1895 until Goodhue's death in April, 1924. He also worked with notable architects James Gamble Rogers, Raymond Hood, and Paul Cret and others, after Goodhue's demise.

He has sculpture at more than a hundred churches, libraries and civic buildings across the nation and beyond, although the majority of his work went unsigned--and unrecognized--due to his acutely shy personality, unusual sense of artistic modesty, and absolute humility.

Chances are, you have never seen much, most or perhaps nearly all of the content on these pages.  And other images you see, will be familiar with, and can now take pride in knowing that Lee Lawrie created those pieces.
