Paul Evans Argente Skyline Low Table $90,000>
Todd Merrill Studio

A popular form that Paul Evans would revisit through his career is a composition he called Skyline. Skyline pieces, such as this unique, playful low table, were comprised of individually hand-welded boxes of varying heights, shapes, textures and designs, bonded together as a solid base. While this arrangement was used extensively in his welded steel, Sculpted Bronze, and eventually Cityscape works, there is no other record of Skyline works in the Argente series apart from this dining table and a corresponding dining table commissioned by a Virgina collector. The low table is made up of 22 boxes, each with hand-applied texture and pattern. Perhaps one of the most expressive of Evans’ forms, the Skyline tables are reliably popular for their whimsical composition and utility.
