Hovsep PUSHMAN (1877-1966) ✿

Hovsep Pushman (1877-1966) was an American artist of Armenian background. He was known for his contemplative still lifes and sensitive portraits of women, often in exotic dress.

Born in Dikranagerd, Asia Minor, Pushman became the youngest student to be admitted to the Istanbul Imperial School of Fine Arts at only 11 years old. He then went on to study in Paris at the Académie Julian under Jules Joseph Lefebvre. In 1918 Pushman settled in Riverside, CA where he and a group of fellow painters founded the Laguna Beach Art Association.
The artist spent his later career in New York City where he exhibited with Grand Central Art Galleries. Today, his works are in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the National Gallery of Armenia in Yerevan, and the San Diego Museum of Art, among others.
