Seymour Lipton

Lipton, Seymour, 1903–86, American sculptor, b. New York City. Self-taught as a sculptor, Lipton worked directly in sheet metals and molten alloys, creating organically twisting forms with richly brazed textural effects. During the 1940s he sculpted heavy jagged shapes suggesting spiritual conflict. In the 1950s his work tended to more graceful forms evocative of plant and animal life. Representative works are Jungle Bloom (Yale Univ. Art Gall., New Haven) and Sanctuary (Mus. of Modern Art, New York City).
