George Constant

George Constant is known for his architectural style of painting and print making. He had more than 40 one-man shows and his works are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum, the Musee D'Art Moderne in Paris, and the Stedalijk Museum in Amsterdam, as well as other institutions. An orphan at four, Constant, came to the United States in 1910. In 1936, he became a naturalized citizen of the United States. During the 1930's, his work was romantic, with emphasis on the themes of love and fertility. In the early 40's, his style changed, said Jeanne Paris, an art critic, "He simply moved from the rounded figure to the square cubist form."
