A domestically scaled iteration of Chamberlain's  dynamic crushed metal sculptures, 'String of Perils' comes from the remarkable collection of Jean Stein.  A renowned journalist and oral historian, Stein brought together fascinating people in legendary salon-like gatherings.  Sotheby's had the privilege of offering Stein's collection in the Fall 2017 sale season.
