He came to the United States with his mother and sisters in 1921 after witnessing the tragic scenes of the Armenian Genocide. His father, a priest, and 22 relatives were massacred by the Turks. He lived in Worcester, Massachusetts, and began to paint while he was still a high school student. After finishing his studies, he moved to Jamaica to paint, and become fascinated with sculpture, primarily carving in the islands native hardwoods. Der Harootian visited London in 1939 and had his work exhibited in group shows. He later returned to Jamaica and devoted the next four years to carving. Der Harootian came back to the United States and had his first one-man show of paintings and sculpture at the Kraushaar Gallery, New York, in 1945. His art was worthily appreciated by the contemporaries and widely reflected in American and world press. Since 1929 Der-Harootian has had a great number of personal exhibitions all over the world (the USA, Jamaica, England, Scotland, Italy, and France). He has co-exhibited his works with world-known artists (Aristide Maillol, Charles Despiau, Pablo Picasso, Naum Gabo, and Jacques Lipchitz) and has been awarded dozens of prizes. Der-Harootians works are housed in different museums of the world and in private collections. His monumental works Mher Junior, Inventor is in the Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, the work Beaver is located in the foyer of Bernard Baruch City College of New York. Another work Armenia Revived rises in the circular park of Yerevan. In 1983 Der Harootian donated the majority of his work to his beloved Armenian people. Echmiadzin Art Gallery was founded in 1970 and the works of American-Armenian sculptor Khoren Der-Harootian (sculptures, drawings, paintings) are displayed in the museum. It housed his sculpture works, paintings of the years spent in Jamaica, and graphic drawings made in different countries. These works reflect the artistic language and visual thinking of the painter, proving his art to be multigenre. 3.
