Alexander Archipenko Art

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),

After I left London, I flew to Chicago to spend the weekend with my friend Dilbarra Arapova before returning to Texas. She is the wife of my friend and mentor, sculptor Vasily Fedorouk.

We had a good visit and a bit productive despite the brevity of it. Dilbarra took me with another friend to The Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art in the Ukrainian Village of Chicago.

I saw there two works by Ukrainian-born American artist Alexander Archipenko (1887-1964), one of Vasily’s favorite artists. This first is titled “La Coquette (1950),” a lithograph on paper. The second lithograph is simply titled “Two Figures, 1921.”

Here are a few shots of the museum environment. More to come next time . . .

This is a nice place. When is it open to the public? I would love to visit it once.
