Object Description
Although Chaim Gross produced a number of abstract sculptures, his main interest throughout his career has been with the human figure. His work is outstanding, though often small in size, and is frequently playful. He focused on figures of acrobats, children, circus performers, as well as religious themes.

Gross was born in Austria and studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna before immigrating to the United States in 1921. In New York he studied modeling in clay at the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design and was greatly influenced by Elie Nadelman. Gross lived in New York, where he had a studio and taught at the Beaux-Arts Institute and at the Art School of the Brooklyn Museum of Art from 1942 through 1959.
