Lynn Chadwick
Boy & Girl - 20th Century, Bronze, Sculpture by Lynn Chadwick

1959

About the Item

Signed, numbered from the edition of 3 plus artist's cast and inscribed with Susse foundry mark. The leitmotif for Chadwick's work in the 1950's was the paired figure. From 1953 onwards, Chadwick developed an array of typologies, whose features he inflected and interchanged. The first manifestation was Conjunction, followed by Two Dancing Figures (or simply Dance), then Encounter, Teddy Boy and Girl , Winged Figures and Boy and Girl. These were never passive meetings, or, for that matter, decorative pas-de-deux. In each instance, an electricity seems to arc between the figures. They circle, momentarily attracted, thrusting arms upwards in ritual dance or courtship.
