Frank Kyle Mexican Three-Panel Screen in Walnut and Bronze, Circa 1950s


Extraordinary 1950s three-panel screen by interior designer, industrial designer and sculptor Frank Kyle (1914-1992), a native of Minneapolis who worked much of his career in California and Mexico City. One side of the screen features inlaid bronze strips in hieroglyphic patterns. The reverse side features a pastoral scene with Japanese figures hand-painted on grasscloth. Kyle imported these paintings and incorporated them into his furniture and interiors. The bottom and top brackets bring to mind pagoda roof lines and lend the screen its dynamic, geometric presence. Extremely interesting and thought to be one of a kind. Authenticated by Frank Kyle's daughter, Lorena Kyle. Mexico City, circa 1950s. As shown approximately 22" d x 70-1/2" w x 71-1/2" h; overall approximately 89-1/2" w; center section is 28" w to pivots; each wing extends 27" from pivot to end of base. See this item in our Brooklyn showroom, 61 Greenpoint Ave., Suite 312, Brooklyn, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and by appointment.
