Monumental Carved Wood Nude Sculpture by Hy Farber


Originating in New York, Hy Farber studied at Florence Crane School of Art under Jean Charlot, and Pratt Institute. He was a staff illustrator for New York's PM newspaper, and his WW2 war effort poster design was featured in the Museum of Modern Art, with a letter of commendation from President Roosevelt. He went on to win over 70 awards, and is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. From 1951-1983 he taught graphic design at UCLA, Cal State U Northridge, Cal State ULA, Art Center College of Design, and Manchester College of England. Working throughout his life as an artist, he embarked on a series of massive wooden sculptures in the 1980s to great success. This stylized nude embodies Farbers' imaginative approach to sculpting. At 65 inches tall,the lovely lady is imposing and impressive, and finely executed. The multiple layers of wood are fluidly shaped into pleasing curves to great effect. The wooden body is completed in a clear coated finish, atop a laminated rolling platform.
