Biography

American Frank Jirouch was a sculptor, painter, lithographer, etcher and also a member of the National Sculpture Society. He was educated as a wood-carver. In 1900 Jirouch founded an architectural firm with New York sculptor, George Fischer. They produced architectural relief sculptures primarily for public buildings, theaters, and churches.
