André Emmerich Gallery, Inc., New York Acquired from the above by the present owner
"And one day I was standing in the living room of our house on East Place in Georgetown... and I thought to myself, 'If I make a sculpture, it will just stand up straight and the seasons will go around it and the light will go around it and it will record time.'"
This work is in very good and stable condition overall. The colors are bright and fresh. There is evidence of light wear and handling to the work with scattered light accretions and scuffs.
