Innovative artist Alexander Archipenko (American, born Ukraine, 1887–1964) was a seminal figure in early twentieth-century art, renowned for his achievements in modern sculpture. Archipenko found inspiration in the works of Cubists and Italian Futurists, forging new ground by combining traditional and nontraditional materials. His signature "sculpto-paintings," a fusion of both painting and sculpture, and his technique of incorporating voids within his works proved his pioneering, avant-garde approach. Archipenko also embraced printmaking and he worked in a variety of print techniques. Prints were often studies for his three-dimensional pieces or refinements of his completed sculptures. This is often how Archipenko worked. He returned to earlier ideas and created a symbiotic relationship between his drawings, prints, and sculptural works. As he explored his ideas in one medium it would spur ideas for exploration in another format.
