There we were, strolling along Central Park South, when we walked past Galeries Bartoux and saw in the window the double cherries and the love cherries.
Vigelandzoon Lothar makes bronze sculptures, using the method of cire perdu. By using different patines on his sculptures he tries to soften the bronze. The realistic colored cherries, as well as the other figurative sculptures are characterized by movement and balance, and leaves sufficient space for the viewer’s own fantasy. Like owning these amazing cherries!
But that’s not going to happen with a price tag of $US18,800 per sculpture.
Lothar was born in Paramaribo, Surinam. He lived in the Netherlands from 1966 to 2000 and is now living in Vence, France, where he is active as a sculptor.
