Jacques Lipchitz’s Return of the Prodigal Son retains a disciplined angularity derived from his early investigation of Cubism. It dates, however, from a later phase in his career, when he was occupied with organic forms and themes related to the human condition. Return of the Prodigal Son was Lipchitz’s first interpretation of a biblical subject.
