About

'Raindrops' by Stewart MacDougall was executed in early 2000's in Santa Barbara, CA, composed from birch and mirrored acrylic. Gorgeous dusty rose pink color with blue tinted mirror, complete on both sides mounted on a birch base. Acquired from the artist's estate. ABOUT THE ARTIST Stewart MacDougall was an accomplished furniture designer and artist across multiple disciplines, born in 1927 in Pasadena California. MacDougall attended the Chouinard Art Institute, later to be mentored by architect Rudolf Baumfeld, a student of Le Courbusier. Macdougall was one of the lead designers for the Monsanto House of the Future in Disneyland in 1957. MacDougall's lifetime accomplishments include works and designs published in furniture, sailboats, golf equipment, and sculptures. Often most noted is his collection of Mid-Century Modern furniture along with Kipp Stewart for Drexel which included a collection of chairs, tables and cabinets. Many of these furniture designs are now sought-after collectors items for art and design enthusiasts, with demand similar to designs by Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen and Edward Wormley. In his later years, he designed and built several large, colorful and distinctively named sculptures (Hal, Prancing Horse, High C) that reside in Santa Barbara, and a smaller piece that is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This piece, titled 'Raindrops' was completed later in Macdougall's career, after decades of artistic accomplishments in Mid-Century Modern that was the stylistic foundation for the hit TV show 'Mad Men' to later Post-Modern designs and art pieces demonstrating his ability to maintain relevance while changing to different mediums at different points in time. This sculpture is an excellent opportunity for both an art collector and a design enthusiast as it bridges the two worlds with a one of a kind fine art sculpture from one of the more prolific names in Mid-Century Modern design. PROVENANCE: Property from the Estate of Stewart MacDougall, Santa Barbara, CA MEASUREMENTS: H 75.25" x W 14.5" x D 33" CONDITION: Excellent re-lacquered condition, very attractive and ready for immediate use.
