Archipenko settled in the United States in 1923 after 15 years in Paris, where he created sculpture inspired by the Cubist movement. An example of his pioneering work in sculpture can be seen in Gallery H200.
This painting of two walking figures reflects an emphasis on angular forms and irregular contours often associated with Cubism.
Archipenko’s contrast of light and shadow endows the somewhat mysterious figures with a sense of rhythm and energy.
