Lithuanian-born Boleslaw Cybis emigrated to the United States from Poland at the outbreak of the Second World War, established a studio in Trenton, New Jersey, and soon after became a United States citizen.
Although he spent his early years as a painter, Cybis was fascinated with three-dimensional porcelain art, and upon coming to the United States, he began to focus on porcelain sculpture using techniques derived from his study of the Old Masters in Europe.
Today, Cybis porcelains are given as gifts of state and found in the permanent collections of museums, embassies, government buildings, and art galleries around the world.
The Museum of American Porcelain Art is open to the general public at listed times and welcomes requests for private or group tours. The Museum also welcomes inquiries about donations, including donations of collections. Please contact us for more information.
