I do not want to make a painting; I want to open up space, create a new dimension, tie in the cosmos, as it endlessly expands beyond the confining plane of the picture.

Lucio Fontana

Works from the Corwin Collection

This work is from the collection of Dr. Henry and Betty Corwin. Dr. Corwin, renowned by profession, had a great appreciation for the arts and aesthetics. An avid sculptor himself, Dr. Corwin created works in bronze, wood and brass. He was greatly inspired by the work of Alberto Giacometti, whom he visited and whose art he collected. In 1955, he and his wife hired Richard Neurta to design their Connecticut home which they filled with the art they loved. This work has remained in the family collection until now.
