This site is dedicated to advancing the scholarship, recognition and appreciation for the 20th Century German-American sculptor Lee Lawrie.

Lee Lawrie
Lawrie's sculpture was done over a career that spanned seven decades, from the Gaslight Era until the Space Age.

Lawrie was one of the nation's premier practitioners of Art Deco sculpture, mostly architectural, but some figurative and medalic work as well.

You may purchase it at the Nebraska State Historical Society's Museum Store. If you care to buy it online, you may do so here. As the lone author, photographer, researcher, graphic artist and proofreader, I've had some typos in the current versions that have been eradicated in those published since the current ones were for sale. Mea Culpa.
