SOREL ETROG (1933-2014)
Family Group, 1966, Cast bronze, Gift of Dr. & Mrs. Harry Y. Hoffman

Family Group is one of Sorel Etrog’s major works. It describes the support of family but also alludes to the complexities of this most integral of human relationships. Born in Romania, Etrog was trained in Tel Aviv and immigrated to New York in 1959. In 1963 he became a Canadian citizen and in 1995 was made a member of the Order of Canada.
