Viewing a Margulies bronze for the first time, one is struck by the sculptor's complete mastery of the medium. The pieces have a warm, translucent quality, a luster of skin surface that invites the touch. This meticulously crafted work has set a new standard of excellence that other contemporary sculptors now strive to attain -- a return to the flawless finish of past centuries, almost forgotten in recent times.

Unlike the postured bronzes from the past masters, his subject is clearly today's woman, contemporary in form and stance, yet somehow timeless in essence.

A Margulies sculpture, with its richly finished bronze luster and subtle harmonies of light, form, space, and gesture, engage and draw the viewer into an intimate private world.
