Findlay Galleries is proud to announce an exhibition of new sculptural works in marble and bronze from the American sculptor Dimitry Gerrman on Saturday, April 3, 2021 at Findlay Galleries, Palm Beach.
Dimitry Gerrman was born in 1955 in Gomel, Belorussia. In 1974, he graduated from the Sculpture Department of the Glebov Art College in Minsk. Shortly after, he completed his first commission, which was a monumental relief dedicated to the Russian Revolution in his hometown. Seeking to further his education and master his craft, Gerrman studied Monumental Sculpture at the Vera Mukhina Academy of Arts faculty in St. Petersburg, Russia. Due to his advanced ability and natural talent in sculpture from a young age, Gerrman had an active schedule of national exhibitions and commissioned projects throughout the Glasnost period (1986 – 1991). In 1990, he moved to the United States and further developed his artistic endeavors. At the turn of the millennium, Findlay Galleries began representing Dimitry Gerrman exclusively.
Gerrman’s work has received strong interest from major collectors and institutions throughout his career. His sculpture The Crying Violin was commissioned for the highly regarded Lester Levy Humanitarian Award and became the International Elie Wiesel Holocaust Remembrance Award, which is given for outstanding dedication and service to maintain the memory of the holocaust. Steven Spielberg was the first recipient of the award for his movie Schindler’s List.
It is often noted that Gerrman’s Russian cultural heritage combined with his classical training underlies his work; he is constantly exploring a variety of themes and compositions while experimenting with the plasticity of form and rhythm. Gerrman’s works can be found in numerous museums worldwide, including The State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, which he truly feels is an exalted honor from his native land. We, too, feel honored to represent Dimitry Gerrman on an exclusive basis in America.
This exhibition will be on view at Findlay Galleries, Palm Beach and the full catalog of works will be available to view online.
"Gerrman has developed his art through two seemingly opposite themes: the search for order and the destruction of order. He juxtaposes and unites rough and polished surfaces, geometric elements and rich textures, connecting chaos to harmony. His works breathe life, arousing a broad range of emotions in viewers who discover his unique visual language."

About Findlay Galleries
Celebrating 150 years in business, Findlay Galleries is an iconic family art business founded in 1870. Specializing in Impressionism, European Modernism, l'Ecole de Rouen, L'Ecole de Paris, and 20th Century American Art, the gallery represents over 100 artists and artist estates. Named Wally Findlay Galleries since 1965, the business was acquired in 1998 by James R. Borynack. A longtime Findlay executive, Borynack was committed to the relentless pursuit of veritable European period works and contemporary artists. In 2016 Borynack also acquired the David Findlay Jr. Gallery and merged the two. Since then, the gallery has operated under its original name from 1870, Findlay Galleries, and has continued to offer a strong collection of both period works and contemporary art, both European and American.
