Sculptor Abrasha (Abraham) Lozoff was born in Siberia, Russia in 1887 and moved to Riga, Latvia during his childhood. He remained there until 1914, then immigrated first to the USA, and then to Canada, where he lived for many years, adopting Canadian nationality. He also lived in Florence and Paris, where he trained under the French sculptor Bourdelle, before finally immigrating to England, probably in the 1920s. During his decade in England, he exhibited once with the London Group (as a non-member) at the 1926 summer exhibition. By the late 1920s, Lozoff had a studio in London's Ladbroke Grove on the former site of the Mercury Theatre, where he worked in a variety of materials including plaster, wood, metal, stone and - at the time of his death - jade. His sculpture was also shown at the Royal Academy in 1934 and at Ben Uri in 1934, 1935 and 1936, as well as on many occasions posthumously, including the exhibition Wood Carvings by Abraham Lozoff and Paintings and Sculpture from the Permanent Collection in 1950. Abraham Lozoff died in London, England in 1936. His work is held in the Ben Uri Collection and Tate.
