Hawthorne Tree, Variation III, 1990

Isaac Witkin Image

DESCRIPTION: (93” X 83” X 83”) Hawthorne Tree, Variation III, represents a particularly innovative and mature phase of Witkin’s career. Here, the artist elaborated on his pioneering technique of constructing sculptures from freely poured bronze forms. The organic shapes that make up the sculpture are the result of experimentation and construction with modeled and cast forms. Hawthorne Tree, Variation III is on loan courtesy of Nadine Witkin, the artist’s daughter.

BIOGRAPHY: Isaac Witkin, an internationally renowned sculptor, was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1936 and died in 2006. Witkin and his peers were hailed as the New Generation of sculptors because they challenged assumptions about sculpture and its functions. Their abstract forms of modern sculpture reached and changed the art world.
