Luce Artist Biography

Abram Belskie's passion for art emerged when he was very young. The artist opened his own studio in Glasgow, Scotland, when he was only eighteen, then moved to New York City at twenty-two to pursue a career as a sculptor. In 1939, Belskie began working with Dr. Robert Latou Dickinson to make sculptural models that have helped to train generations of medical students. Five years after Belskie's death the citizens of Closter, New Jersey, opened the Belskie Museum of Art and Science to honor the humanitarian sculptor.
