Louis Lozowick (1892-1973) was an Art Deco lithographer. Born in the Ukraine, he was educated in Kiev before immigrating to the United States. He then studied at the National Academy of Design and Ohio State University. Lozowick composed innumerable prints over a fifty-year period about American life.
New York (1923). For Lozowick's generation, New York City was the icon of progress.
Bridge Repair (1938). Art Deco emphasized clean, crisp lines glistening in the light of industrial, mass-produced perfection. Lozowick wrote: "The dominant trend in America of today, beneath all the apparent chaos and confusion, is toward order and organization which find their outward sign and symbol in the rigid geometry of the American city: in the verticals of its smoke stacks, in the parallels of its car tracks, in the squares of its streets, the cubes of its factories, the arc of its bridges, the cylinders of its gas tanks."
