Lozowick went to Rockport in the 1930s and focused on social and workers’ concerns in his art. Born in Ukraine in 1892, he escaped the political violence against Jews in 1906. Without papers or a passport, he joined a brother in New York, worked in factory jobs, and studied at the National Academy of Design until he went to Europe to study more. He returned to the United States as a committed left-wing artist who believed that art could help change the world for the better.
