Catalogue Note

Robin Williams and Dale Chihuly were both recipients of Golden Plate Awards from the Academy of Achievement in the 1990s, honoring their many contributions to the arts over their long and celebrated careers.  In 1995, Robin and Dale met for the first time when they spoke together on a panel at the Academy of Achievement Awards in Washington, D.C., alongside other notable artists of the 20th Century such as Frank Gehry.  After that initial meeting, Robin and Marsha acquired the present three “Macchia” sculptures (lots 62-64).
