Seymour Lipton was an American abstract expressionist sculptor. He was a member of the New York School who gained widespread recognition in the 1950's. He initially trained as a dentist but focused on sculptor from 1032. His earl choices of medium changed from wood to lead and the to bronze, and he is best known for his work in metal. He made several technical innovations, including brazing nickel-silver rods onto sheets of Monel to create rust resistant forms. Much of his art addresses the themes of flight, nature, and war.
