SOREL ETROG "ACROBAT" BRONZE, 1975
Sorel Etrog (1933 - 2014) is arguably Canada's most famous sculptor.
His work can be found in numerous museum and private collections including the Tate, the AGO and LACMA.
His public sculptures can be found on iconic corners in Toronto, Montreal, Israel and beyond.
This work is a fine example of Etrog's evolving aesthetic of the 1970's. At the end of the 1960's Etrog began to become increasingly interested exploring the relationship/fusion of man and machinery. Human joints and limbs are depicted as elements of instruments in motion. Appropriately, bodies, such as "Acrobats", devoted to perfecting their movements and capacity for perfection are perfect subjects for Etrog.
