Sculptors and medallists
Probably because of a reference in the Bible to Abraham destroying statues of pagan gods, Jewish artists refrained from producing sculptures representing humans until at least the 19th Century. It was only after 1880, when many Jews benefited from the emancipation process in Central and Eastern Europe that they felt inclined to turn to this form of art.Many Jewish artists worked as sculptors during the 19th and 20th Century, some of them became quite famous like Chana Orlov, Jacques Lipchitz, Elie Nadelman or Jacob Epstein among others.

In 1934 he worked in Detroit on the Plymouth Motor assembly line and also boxed before becoming a “Golden Gloves” welterweight champion for Detroit Motors under the moniker “Jackie Myers”. Levitan began his artistic career after studying painting in 1938. After serving in the U.S Navy during the Second World War, Levitan became a qualified physiotherapist. In 1946, he studied painting under Amedee Ozenfant and also with Hans Hofmann who advised him to take up sculpture. He then went in 1950 to Paris with his wife Idee, who was also an artist, to study with Ossip Zadkine before setting up his studio on his return to New York. Levitan had six one-man shows from 1952 through 1964 and was included in over 30 group exhibitions during the same period. He then took the decision to stop showing and selling his works but did not stop sculpting during many years.
