Swiss-born Lucienne Bloch was an artist and an innovator. She is considered a pioneer in the design of glass sculpture.
Having grown up in Michigan and lived in Detroit for several years, Bloch’s Detroit depictions are meaningful to me.
Bloch spent a lot of time with Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera (she married Rivera’s plasterer) and may be best known for being the only person to have photographed Diego’s 30 Rock mural before it was destroyed, unfinished, in 1934.
Bloch created one post office mural: General G. H. Thomas and Philip Sheridan (Fort Thomas, Kentucky).
