Biography

Area artists and friends will gather February 3, 1974 to pay homage to the late Albert Drexler Jacobson, internationally-known sculptor and ceramist in a memorial service to be held at 5 p.m. at the Silvermine Guild of Artists, the New Canaan art center which he served in many capacities for 40 years and of which he was vice president at the time of his death 3 weeks ago.
At the service, a seven-foot-sectional sculpture, "Stone-Flower," bequeathed to the Guild by the late artist, will be unveiled following extemporaneous eulogies by president of the guild George F. Lowman, of Darien, and fellow artists Miriam Broudy, executive vice president, Gabor Peterdi and Frederic Hicks, all of Norwalk and Sonia Sharaf, a close family friend. The work will be permanently installed in the Sculpture Garden, adjacent to the largest of the Guild's four galleries.
Albert Jacobson was born in New York into a family of artists and musicians, studied at the Beaux Arts School of Design, the Art Students League and in Paris and Rome, witnessing the beginning of the modern art movement.
He also taught sculpture and ceramics at the Museum of Modern Art School, Brooklyn Museum Art School, New York University Teacher's Training College, Hoboken, New Jersey, The Silvermine Guild School of the Arts and at the New Canaan High School.
He won countless prizes in major exhibitions and his works are in the permanent collection of the Utica Museum of Art, the Royal Ontario Museum, and in many private collections. He resided and worked in Wilton since 1931 and became a professional member of Silvermine Guild in 1934.
