Jacques and Yulla Lipchitz

The Lipchitz works in Prato: a story with a happy ending

There are times when you feel that life has a meaning and a continuity. This is what I feel today as, together with my city, I celebrate the arrival of the 43 drawings and the 21 plaster pieces by Jacques Lipchitz that will find a home in the Municipal Museum of Prato. These are a donation from the attorney Hanno D. Mott, son of Mrs. Yulla Lipchitz.
