Lily Ente (1905-1984) was a sculptor known for her works in white Italian and black Belgian marble.
Born Lena Deitchman in what is now Ukraine, she escaped the Russian Empire after World War I and lived in Paris and Cuba before joining her father in New York City in 1923. She married Lazar Ente who she met in Cuba, and the couple settled in the Bronx where they raised a family.
Ente's sister-in-law introduced her to sculpture and she first worked with clay before moving to marble. She exhibited her work around the world in the 1940s and 1950s and maintained a studio in Manhattan. Later in life, she and her husband moved to Woodstock, New York, where she continued to work and exhibit her sculptures.
Lily Ente died in 1984 in New York City.
