Large Modernist Nude Bronze Woman Sculpture
Item Details
Description
A signed and titled Estelle Goodman (1930-2007, American) large abstract figural bronze sculpture of a woman with flowing hair holding a bird with flowing tail feathers in her hand. The nude woman is presented as a figurative caregiver. Her elongated facial features are reminiscent of Modigliani while her form is Giacometti in essence. The bronze is attached to a wood base covered in a black laminate. The base measures approximately 12 in wide by 6 in deep by .5 in high. The laminate has chips and is separate from the wood base in areas. The bronze statue measures approximately 7.5 in at the widest by 30.25 in high by 6.75 in deep. The bronze is in very good condition with age appropriate wear. It is signed Estelle Goodman in the cast. It is titled Birds of Pleasure. ARTIST BIO: Estelle Goodman (1930-2007, American) was a modernist expressionist painter and sculptor during the mid 20th Century in New York. Ms. Goodman resided at the fabled Majestic on Central Park West at 72nd Street in Manhattan and had an art studio in her apartment. This work is from the Collection of Estelle Goodman. A collection that has only now been rediscovered. Her artist studio home had been vacant and under lock and key since 2007. The works in this fresh to the market trove of modernist, expressionist, abstract and mid century paintings and sculpture are on the market for the first time in decades. Ms. Goodman studied at and graduated from Barnard College. As a woman artist, Ms. Goodman often explored concepts of the human figure in both sculpture and painting. Ms. Goodman was known to have cast at the Modern Art Foundry in Astoria, Queens, New York. This was an important American foundry that cast works from many of the leading sculptors working in the mid century period, including Miro, Archipenko, Noguchi, Lachaise and Lipchitz. She was a member of various arts institutions including the Artist-Craftsmen of New York, the New Jersey Society of Painters and Sculptors, the Yonkers Art Association, the Knickerbocker Artists and League of Present Day Artists.
