Jacques Lipchitz explored the possibilities of Cubism in three-dimensional space more thoroughly than any of his contemporaries. He was introduced to Pablo Picasso in 1913, a meeting that would influence his sculpture throughout the rest of his career. Bather III demonstrates Lipchitz’s stunning ability to apply Cubist theory to sculpture in the round.
