Description Painter, sculptor and writer William Zorach was born in Lithuania in 1889 but moved to the United States with his family in 1893, settling in Cleveland. Zorach stayed in Ohio for almost 15 years pursuing his artistic endeavors. He worked as a lithographer as a teenager and went on to study painting with Henry G. Keller at the Cleveland School of Art from 1905-1907. Zorach continued his artistic training at the Art Students League in New York City, and like many artists of that time period, went to Europe to study. While in Paris, Zorach met artist Marguerite Zorach, who would become his wife in 1912. The Zorachs were among a group of modernist New England artists who exhibited Fauvist paintings at the Armory Show in 1913 as well as Cubist and Expressionist works at the Forum Exhibition in New York in 1916.

Zorach spent the year 1920 in Yosemite Valley which resulted in many works depicting the beauty of the area, and then in 1923, Zorach bought a farm in Georgetown, Maine, where he and his family would spend their summers, capturing the Maine landscape with his watercolors and continuing to sculpt. Zorach became recognized as one of the country's premier artists, and his works were included in exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago, Dallas Museum of Fine Art, McNay Art Institute, and Whitney Museum of American Art, among others. Zorach’s works can be found in numerous private, corporate, and public collections across the country including such acclaimed locales as the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art and the National Gallery of Art, among others.
