Jacques Lipchitz (1891-1973)

Notes

Lipchitz usually made drawings prior to executing his ideas for sculptures three dimensionally. This is a very good example of his early cubist work. A close correlation can be drawn between this work and the artist's sculptures of 1915-1916, such as Sculpture (Wilkinson, no. 37), in which the same obelisque form can be found.

VAT rate of 5% is payable on hammer price plus buyer's premium.
