About this Item

A mixed-media sculpture, signed and dated by the artist. Inside a black-painted cigar box is a group of stubby pencils, sharpened to different heights and painted black. The face of a clock, moon-like, is pasted above the pencils. Klebanow was born in Boston in 1915 and attended the Boston Museum School and the Massachusetts College of Art before pursuing a career in advertising and fine art. His first solo show was held at the Heller Gallery in New York City in 1981. According to Douglas Heller in the exhibition catalogue, "Hy Klebanow's long time response and pleasure in the examination and collection of familiar objects, leftovers, parts of things, the discards of our world, are what his collages are about. Each piece is a statement of the past and a prologue to the future." Eyelet screws in the back of the box allow the piece to be hung on the wall. Very fine. Bookseller Inventory # 25697
