Property of a West Coast Private Collector
Hervé Van der Straeten
from an edition of 20
pigmented steel, patinated bronze, mirrored glass
52 1/2 in. (133.3 cm) maximum diameter
Overall in very good condition. The pigmented steel rings display a textured midnight blue surface with irregularities inherent to production. The steel presents with a few scattered small losses to the pigment as well as occasional traces of oxidation, not visually distracting. A few rings display separation at the connecting joints, stable and not visible when the piece is installed. The patinated bronze surfaces present with scattered scratches, traces of oxidation, tarnish and light pitting consistent with age. The mirrored glass is in excellent condition with some extremely faint scattered surface scratches. An inventive and dynamic form by Hervé van der Straeten.
