"A New American Sculpture, 1914–1945: Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach" is the first exhibition to investigate the integral relationships between modernism, classicism and popular imagery in the interwar sculpture of Gaston Lachaise, Robert Laurent, Elie Nadelman and William Zorach.

Assembled from public and private collections, this exhibition of approximately 55 sculptures and 20 drawings addresses the remarkable affinities between the work of these four divergent and competitive personalities, who redefined sculpture’s expressive potential during the turbulent interbellum period. Known to each other but working independently, these four immigrant artists created figural sculptures that reveal a confluence of sources, from archaism and European avant-garde art to vernacular traditions and American popular culture.
