Zorach, William {zor'-ahk} The American sculptor, painter, and graphic artist William Zorach, b.Eurburg, Lithuania, Feb. 28, 1887, d. Nov. 16, 1966, is best known forhis sculpture, produced after 1922 when he abandoned painting. Entirely self-taught, Zorach worked in marble as well as various metals,producing notably original figural pieces characterized by theirblocklike contours and bulk. Among his larger projects are Builders ofthe Future (1939), produced for the New York World's Fair, and Man andWork (1953), commissioned by the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Zorach studied in Paris between 1910 and 1911; his paintings of thisperiod show a marked Fauvist influence. He later settled in New York Cityand held (1916) a one-man show that reflected his increasing interest incubism. Zorach taught at the Art Students League in New York City from 1929 to1960.
