Made of patinated bronze and glass, this sculptural chandelier was created by Arman circa 1970. Inspired by the shape of a violin, it is a one-of-a-kind prototype that was never put into production. Two red-orange glass tubes have been replaced. This piece is signed by the designer. Born in Nice, Arman (1928-2005) studied at the École des Arts Décoratifs in Nice and at the École du Louvre. Under the leadership of art critic Pierre Restany, Arman became a founding member of the New Realists along side of François Dufrêne, Raymon Hains, Martial Raysse, Daniel Spoerri, Jean Tinguely, and Jacques Villeglé—who were later joined by César, Mimmo Rotella, Niki de Saint Phalle, Gerard Deschamps, and Christo. He is best known for his "accumulations" and destruction/recomposition of objects.
