Detail of Sonambient Sculpture (1974), Harry Bertoia

One of the most innovative artists of the 20th century, Harry Bertoia was often inspired by nature and music, and in the early 1960s, he embarked on a sonic journey to join the two disciplines. Throughout the decade, Bertoia created over a hundred Sonambient sculptures that produced various tones depending on the length and mass of the copper rods. In the upcoming May 18, 2014 Modern Art & Design Auction, we are offering one of these rare Sonambient masterpieces.
