Aleksandr Archipenko was a pioneering Ukrainian-born American artist who was renowned for his modernist works of art. He gained widespread fame when his own brand of abstract art and avant-garde sculptures first became exhibited in the early twentieth century. His most distinguished works include his Cubist sculptures such as the 1913 sculpture, 'Woman with a Negroid Head', the 1915 sculpture, 'The Peasant', and the 1920 sculpture, 'The Messenger'. Archipenko's most recognizable paintings include 'Four Figures' (1912), 'Lady in Yellow' (1914), and 'Visage' (1919). He was also well known for his experiments with bronze, plastic, and ceramic materials. Archipenko also revolutionized the art of bas-relief by using pieces of cut-out metal, colored glass, and other materials in his works. His individualistic style and innovative techniques influenced many other contemporary sculptors.
