Leon Bronstein is one of the world's most widely collected sculptors. A bronze sculptor who has led a life of adventure and transformation that has taken him from the country of his birth in Moldavia to the land of Israel. An engineer and watchmaker by training, Bronstein's vivid and active imagination ripened and evolved as he sought freedom with his family away from the constraint of the familiar culture of his birth.
Leon Bronstein's work shares a strong affinity with the great English sculptors of this century, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.
Bronstein, like many seekers, discovered within himself a source of strength and creative power that would generate an artistic vocation inspired with determination to express a reach for freedom.
It was the beautiful grain of olive wood at a woodshop near the city of Caesarea that the sculptor first fashioned a small figure that had such immediate appeal to the shopkeeper that his new direction was charted. The year was 1979, Bronstein could not find a job as an engineer or watchmaker, he needed employment, he could work with tools and had molded clay and worked with wood as a child. Discovered was an innate talent that found its bearing.
Since 1987 when we first acquired Bronstein's olive wood sculptures, Saper Galleries has been proud to represent the bronze creations of this wonderful artist and personal friend, Leon Bronstein.
