A Vocabulary All Her Own: Claire Falkenstein’s “Point as a Set” Sculptures

February 9, 2016

Lot 55 Claire Falkenstein Point as a Set #27 (1976)

Claire Falkenstein is one of the most important and intriguing figures in post-war American art. Drawing on influences as diverse as Einsteinian physics and the French avant-garde, Falkenstein developed an artistic vocabulary all her own. She began her Point as a Set sculptural series in Los Angeles in the early 1960s, marking the beginning of her mature artistic career. On February 21, 2016, LAMA will be offering two significant works from this series dating from the 1970s.
