SOREL ETROG "CONSTRUCTION SKETCH" DRAWING

$2,100

Sorel Etrog's "Painted Constructions" from the late 1950's is one of the most important series that the sculptor created.

In the 1970's while working in France, he revisited these forms and decided to create a small number of etchings based on these sensational and career-defining works. 

Working directly with the Sorel Etrog estate, Caviar20 uncovered some of the original drawings that inspired the series. The influences of tribal art are particularly strong in these drawings.

This intimate ink drawing is an exceptional example of Etrog's multi-disciplinary practice and reveals how the different medium he worked in (drawing, printmaking and sculpture) informed and enhanced his output. 

Sorel Etrog (1933 - 2014) is arguably Canada's most famous sculptor. His work can be found in numerous museum and private collections including the Tate, the AGO and LACMA.

His public sculptures can be found on iconic corners in Toronto, Montreal, Israel and beyond.  

The Art Gallery of Ontario organized a major retrospective of his work that ran during 2013.

Check out this great slide show by the Globe & Mail featuring the 8 Etrog publics sculptures around Toronto.

This drawing is a rare example of one of Etrog's working drawings to come on the market.
