Louis Lozowick was born in Ludvinovka in the Ukraine in 1892. He is best known for his lithographs of skyscrapers, constructions and machinery, a series spanning fifty years. Lozowick’s lithographs showed his interests in the repetitious forms of windows, pipes, towers, tanks and smokestacks of the factories, skyscrapers and bridges of New York.
He attended the Kiev Art School in Russia, before coming to the United States in 1906. In New York, he studied at the National Academy of Design with Leon Kroll and Emil Carlsen. In 1918, he graduated from Ohio State University and then went to Europe, where he studied in Paris and Berlin and was greatly influenced by the Constructivists, De Stijl and the Bauhaus philosophies.
Lozowick was on the editorial board of the New Masses and was active as a lecturer and writer. From 1934 to 1940, he was in the graphics division of the New York City Works Progress Administration. He was a member of the American Printmakers and the American Society of Printers, Sculptors and Gravers. Lozowick’s work was included in the AIGA “50 Prints of the Year” in 1932, 1933 and 1934.
