Sir Nicolaus Koni

Sir Nicolaus Koni (1911-2000) born in Transylvania who lived on Long Island, Palm Beach, and Europe was a true statesman of art, and an internationally acclaimed master sculptor and painter.  Koni art lives through his many creations on display in private and public collections in famed museums and educational institutions around the world. The Koni Cultural Arts Center and The Koni Foundation has been established to perpetuate the memory, works and teachings of Nicolaus Koni.

Soldier of Humanity

Tribute to the Medical Solider A memorial to the men of the Medical Corps, with which Koni served during the WWII. The statue is two and a half feet high; cast in bronze on a granite base making it 28 to 30 feet in height. Koni entered the Army in 1944 and took basic training at Camp Grant, Illinois.

Birth of Eve

"The Birth of Eve seems to be Koni's favorite in terms of artistic excellence. Koni has said, "the Birth of Eve has never been done before in the history of art.  Donatello skipped it. Michelangelo skipped it because the concept was too difficult. My work is the fusion of the two-of technique and anatomy. It is harmony of the two."

Mother and Child

This work emerges as a deep philosophical meaning of life, a modern sophisticated mother and the phenomenal nature of the child, expressing a deep philosophical meaning of life, love and tender adoration according to Koni.

Bust of David Ben Gurion

Benevolence and fortitude merges congruous with the awe-inspiring expression that emerges from this monumental art work. Attached to a stone base craved by reknown Italian marble carver, Gino Varlechi the stone was reclaimed from the Arch of Titus, commemorating the conquer of Israel. Nearly 2000 years later, Koni captures the first prime minister of Israel as a memento of the liberation of Israel.

“Marian Anderson had an intriguing mixture of humility and strength”- Nicholas Koni
