Richard Artschwager Chair / Chair, 1987-90 Red oak, formica, cowhide and painted steel 39 x 40 x 52 in. (99.1 x 101.6 x 132.1 cm) Edition of 100, #73/100 Richard Artschwager (American, 1923-2013) was an extremely versatile painter and sculptor, associated over the course of his career with Pop, Optical, Minimalist and Conceptual Art. In the 1960s, Artschawager turned to sculpture, drawing attention to art's illusionist properties by painting over found wooden objects with artificial wood grains. His later paintings and sculptures incorporated increasingly diverse materials, such as wood, mirrors, and Formica, as he continued to explore domestic interiors and to push at the laws of perception. His work has been the subject of numerous important exhibitions, and institutions such as the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
