SOREL ETROG "ANTITETE STUDY" BRONZE, 1976
Sorel Etrog (1933 - 2014) is arguably Canada's most famous sculptor.
His work can be found in numerous museum and private collections internationally including the Tate, the AGO and LACMA.
His public sculptures can be found on iconic corners in Toronto, Montreal, Israel and beyond.
Etrog was elected a member of the Order of Canada in 1994 and two years later became a Chevalier of Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France.
"Antidote Study" is evocative of Etrog's best work from the 1970's - the combination of machine and architecture resembling a device from the future...or an abstraction composed of hinges, keys and mysterious constructions.
This desk-top sized example is a paradigm of Etrog's inspiring and inimitable forms.
Another casting of this exact sculpture appeared in the Art Gallery of Ontario's exhibition that ran in 2013 and appears in the accompanying catalog on page 27.
Provenance: The Estate of Sorel Etrog, Toronto
