The images in this first gallery, are from the book, “Sculpture,” by Lee Lawrie, published by J. H. Jansen, Cleveland, 1936.  A number of libraries have this book, but some sell them off as unwanted and passe.  

Inasmuch as this was published at the height of the Great Depression, I theorize that Lawrie used this as his resume, when trying to obtain work, when there was very little to be had.  I still need to determine how to display the captions. But until then, simply look and behold the genius that was Lee Lawrie.

Lee Lawrie, Autobiographic Details.  These notes come from Lawrie’s never-completed autobiography “Boy Wanted,” from his archives at the Library of Congress.  In this excerpt, Lawrie describes a little about how he got started in architectural sculpture.
