Description

Lucienne Bloch (1909 – 1999) was a Switzerland-born American artist. She was best known for her murals and for her association with the Mexican artist Diego Rivera. Bloch was born in Geneva, Switzerland, the youngest child of composer and photographer Ernest Bloch. In 1917, the Bloch family emigrated to America. A multi-talented artist, Lucienne attended the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris at 14, apprenticing with sculptor Antoine Bourdelle and painter Andre Lhote. Her close friend Beniamino Bufano also influenced her sculpture. In 1929, she pioneered the design of glass sculpture for the Royal Leerdam Crystal Glass Factory in the Netherlands.
