Herbert Ferber

USA, 1958
welded lead and copper
15 w × 15 d × 41 h in (38 × 38 × 104 cm)

A fine example of Ferber's mid-career work, the sculpture gracefully synthesizes the figural representation of his early years and the highly abstracted, non-referential forms of his later years. The verticality of the piece and the anthropomorphic appendages lend a human dimension to the stoic, monumental design. Signed and dated on side. Exhibited: New England Center for Contemporary Arts, Brooklyn, CT

provenance: New England Center for Contemporary Arts Sotheby's, November 21, 2000 Private collection

estimate: $15,000–20,000
result: $14,400
