About

A unique brass abstract sculpture mounted on a bronze base. Jim Ritchie (1929-2017) born in Montreal, Canada, is known for his pastel drawings and bronze sculptures. He is stylistically linked with Cubism, Abstract figurative work, and modernism, and the human figure is the subject of much of his work. Ritchie had several exhibitions in Montreal before moving to the small town of Vence in Provence, where he lived and worked for over thirty years. The Adelson Galleries in New York began representing him in 1980, where he had 2 solo exhibitions. Over the next thirty years, Warren Adelson arranged exhibitions of his work in Boston, Los Angeles, and Art Fairs across the country. He had a sixty-year career in sculpting. His son, Paul Leander-Engström, and Adelson Galleries now represent the estate.
