The February 23, 2014 Modern Art & Design Auction features one of the most impressive sculptures to ever come through the LAMA showroom. Ruth Asawa’s seven-lobed hanging sculpture, Untitled S.437 (1956), is a beautiful example of the artist’s dedication to her craft and pioneering experiments in wire sculpture. Not only is this a custom, unique design, but it was born from a mutual bond between two sensitive artists.
