Working Model for Knife Edge Two Piece 1962 (LH 504)

#
#

bronze
length 71cm


‘Sculpture (Knife Edge Two Piece)’ [LH504] was finished in the summer of 1962. It has some connection with the figure I did the previous year, 1961, called ‘Standing Figure (Knife Edge)’ which was influenced by the study of bone forms. It has also some connection with the two-piece sculptures I have been doing since 1959, where the problem of dividing the Reclining Figure into two, and later pieces, occupied me.
