Gerald Laing became a fixture in the British Pop Art movement while still attending university. He traveled to the United States in 1963 and met Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Just two years later, however, Laing turned his attention away from Pop Art to sculpture, which he would focus on for the next forty years. A 1978 sculpture by Laing, titled An American, is available in the upcoming Fine Art, Jewelry, Antiques, Asian & Mid-Century Auction, presented by Clarke Auction Gallery. The piece is the second of three editions of An American and is signed by the artist.
Decorative art collectors can also consider two sculptural chests by Gio Ponti. The Italian designer is best known for his work on the Pirelli Tower in Milan and his Modern design aesthetic. “Industry is the style of the 20th century,” Ponti once said. Also available is a glass chandelier by René Lalique. He rose to prominence during the Exposition Universelle of 1900 in Paris. 25 years later, Lalique brought his new glass technique to the same event and would become known for his stylized molded glass, of which this piece is an example.
