After attending art school in London, Zadkine settled in Paris about 1910, where he became part of the new Cubist movement (1914-1925).
Following this period he developed an original style, strongly influenced by primitive arts.
His best-known work is the sculpture "The Destroyed City" (1953),
a memorial to the destruction of the center
of the Dutch city Rotterdam by the Germans in 1940.
