VINTAGE: A great abstract wall relief by Earl Neiman. (brother of LeRoy) It is signed and dated 1965. I have the proposal presentation sketch to go along with it and it notes the title of the piece as Volcanic Concerto. It appears to have a base of carved, dense foam covered in gold and silver metallic resin with touches of red and blue. The piece measures 33x48 inches. It's really amazing! $4,250.- Statement from the consignor...Anno (Annelore Stern) was a one-off, as they say. She, along with my father, two other brothers and her parents escaped Nazi Germany. They lost a great deal of their extended family to the camps - and off course - they lost all their wealth and belongings. She was 18 or so when they came to America. My grandfather had been an extremely successful industrialist in Essen, and they grew up in a highly cultured, educated, and privileged setting. She was a beautiful, intelligent, and engaging woman, with lots of adventures (and men) in her life; bohemian until the very end (she had a died purple patch of hair even up until her death - just one month shy of 97 years old). She spoke innumerable (4? 5?) languages fluently and was musically gifted (perfect pitch and a beautiful voice) as well as artistically talented. She lived and worked in Manhattan for many years working for the U.N.. Her friends were primarily artists,dancers, actors and writers; Leroy Neiman and his brother (also an artist), among others. She hated the cold weather of N.Y. and jumped at the opportunity to move to L.A. to work as a librarian for USC, where she worked until she retired. She performed in several choirs in L.A. until a year before she died; when standing became too difficult for her. She loved life - was ever the diva - drove us all crazy at times - and we loved her like crazy as well. As they say on the infomercials (from which she purchased all too often); “but wait wait, there’s more!” However, I’ll stop here - as this is no doubt more than you ever wanted to know.
