Hovsep Pushman
American, (5/9/1877–1966)
Born May 9, 1877, in Armenia, a former republic of the Soviet Union at the juncture of Westrern Asia and Eastern Europe. In 1894 he journeyed to the United States and settled in Chicago where he furthered his art studies at the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1910 he traveled abroad to Paris and enrolled at the Academie Julien to study under Jules Joseph Lefebre, Joseph Nicolas Robert-Fleury, and Adolphe Dechenaud. These teachers encouraged Pushman to explore his roots in the East and thus he later embarked on a tour of the Orient whre he encountered the exotic Oriental subject matter and motifs which would become the signature material in his later works.
