Sitter in 8 portraits
Russian-born to a Scottish mother, Zadkine studied sculpture at London's Regent Street Polytechnic and at the Central School of Arts and Crafts, before settling in Paris in 1909. He practised direct carving in wood and stone and made simplified figures, influenced by Romanesque art, and later Cubism.
