Harriet Kittay was born in New York and attended Boston University, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. Ms. Kittay developed her unique style of attenuated, semi-abstract geometric figures, executed in stainless steel and other metals, when she was in Caracas, Venezuela, where she lived for 15 years.

Kittay has several bodies of work, one of which is of ballet dancers in various positions of pose and repose. Another is of sculptures and wall hangings based on Early American folk art of the 18th and 19th centuries.. She has shown widely throughout North and South America and in Europe.

Of her work, a critic from Le Figaro in Paris wrote: "The sculptures of Kittay have a small air of eternity about them."

A New York critic wrote: "The extremely individualistic and unusually sophisticated style of Harriet Kittay translates human motion and emotion in pure angularity. With poetic fluidity her dramatic works are executed in elegant forms, sensitive yet geometric, capturing the grace and the drama of the human form.
