I never heard of Henryk Glicentein (1870-1942) until I read Kineton Parkes calling him the greatest Jewish sculptor (c. 1930)
Another Jewish sculptor is Milton Horn (piece shown above) who was born 35 years later. Both were members of the New York Sculptor's Guild (after Glicenstein fled Europe)- and several of the photos of his work shown here, were taken by Pinchas Horn, Milton's father.
So I'm guessing that they met each other -- and I don't think it's too much of a stretch to see the influence of the older man on the kind of the work the younger man would do for the rest of his career.
Especially in wood carving -- a certain quality of cut
But also in the over-all sense of figure -- what I'd call soulful Jewish -- kind of sweet -- kind of sad --- definately not Classical
Feels like Rembrandt here, doesn't it ? The sad - dark - sensuality
This one feels Egyptian.
And this one feels like the backwoods folk-art that could come from anywhere in Europe, America, or even Africa.
Horn is not remembered for ever mentioning Glicenstein to his students -- but I certainly see a connection -- even if Horn was less similar to folk art, and more connected to the classical traditions of Europe and South Asia.
