The following extract is from the Norman Leibovitch website. If you click here you will be able to read the rest of his story.
Norman Leibovitch first became known in the province of Quebec during the 1940's following a string of highly praised solo exhibitions.
A contemporary and acquaintance of renowned Montreal artists such as Louis Muhlstock, Moe Reinblatt and Sam Borenstein, his work has been shown across North America in major cities such as Montreal, Toronto and New York. The artist's first posthumous retrospective exhibition recently took place at La Galerie d'art D'Outremont from August 17- September 3, 2004, the public was invited to a rare viewing of 75 oil paintings covering the artist's career from his early years until his death in 2002.
Leibovitch studied as a scholarship student at the American Artist School in New York City, and later at the New York Art Students League under the famous sculptor William Zorach. As a Montreal native, however, the artist chose to return to his home city where he worked prolifically, resulting in a present day collection of over 1,000 paintings. He is most recognized for his large scale female nudes, Quebec landscapes and paintings depicting Jewish themes.
