Beautiful table top sculpture by renowned Israeli sculptor Menashe Kadishman. Super quality, and visually stunning. There is a large version of this in the collection of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Gift of Joseph H. Hirshhorn, 1972 The top two elements of this work, a rectangle and a half ring, seem gently balanced on top, in opposition to its construction. Menashe Kadishman was born in Tel-Aviv in 1932. He is a Graduate of St. Martin's School of Art, University of London. From 1947 to 1950, Kadishman studied with the Israeli sculptor Moshe Sternschuss at the Avni Institute of Art and Design in Tel Aviv, and in 1954 with the Israeli sculptor Rudi Lehmann in Jerusalem. In 1959, he moved to London, where he remained until 1972. He had his first one-man show there in 1965 at the Grosvenor Gallery. His sculptures of the 1960s were Minimalist in style and so designed as to appear to defy gravity. This was achieved either through careful balance and construction, as in Suspense (1966), or by using glass and metal so that the metal appeared unsupported, as in Segments (1968). In 1995, he began painting portraits of sheep. These instantly-recognizable sheep portraits soon became his artistic trademark. In 1990, Kadishman was awarded the Dizengoff Prize for Sculpture and in 1995 he was awarded the Israel Prize, for sculpture. Kadishman was an America-Israel Cultural Foundation scholarship recipient from 1960-1962. Selected one man exhibitions 60's 1965 Kadishman, Sculptures - Grosvenor Gallery, London.
