    Art Brokerage: Lucy Agid American Artist: b. 1929. Lucy Bradanovic Agid is renowned for sculptural work that captures the beauty and hardship of the world, while celebrating the human spirit. Her thoughtful figurative compositions reflect her deep concern and love for people, and her masterful training and skills. Agid developed an interest in sculpture from a young age and knew that she would grow into an artist. Born in 1929 in San Pedro, California, her parents immigrated to America from the small island of Vis off the coast from Split in Croatia. Agid struggled socially and academically at school but found an outlet for her creativity in drawing and building. Although her parents did not support her passion to be an artist, she worked at a fish cannery from age 16 to 24 to fund her education at Otis College of Art and Design. Her prodigious talent and skill earned her the Millard Sheets Scholarship and acclaim from faculty members. Renowned painter Francis de Erdely was so impressed by her work that he bought one of her pieces and advised her to follow her dream to become an artist. While Agid continued to study and sculpt, she decided to marry and start a family. As a dedicated mother, she maintained her studio practice but did not regularly exhibit her work until the 1980s. Her work was well received as she began exhibiting on the local and international scale. Her sculptures have been shown at venues in California, New York, and Arizona, as well as several European cities. In 1987, she participated in an exhibition in Pietrasanta Italy, which is a source for much of her marble and bronze casting. Agid’s remarkable passion and quality of work has led to her success, and earned the artist numerous awards and recognitions. Her process of creating depictions of the human condition is as organic as the subject matter; she begins with a sketch, and then makes a small clay prototype before chiseling the marble product. The most important element within her artwork is its life. As Agid herself has eloquently stated, “With me it is continuous movement and rhythm and design. It’s seeing everyday life and conveying it in form.” Listings wanted.
