WILLIAM ZORACH (1889 – 1966)
By the time the Luthuanian born, American bred artist's name was done being Anglesized, the poor kid had been called eveything from Zorach Gorfinkel to Zorach Finkelstein before he was formally known as the man, William Zorach. He studied art in Cleveland and New York before heading to Paris in 1910 where he would meet his lifelong partner, fellow artist Marguerite Thompson. They wed overseas on December 24, 1912 before fleeing France as WWI engulfed Europe.
