The artistic career of sculptor Lilian Swann Saarinen (1912-1995) began with her studies at the NYC Art Students League in 1928, followed by the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan 1936 to 1940. She would live much of her adult life in Massachusetts, as well as Europe, teaching at the Pratt Institute, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, as well as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. Saarinen also participated in a Red Cross rehabilitation program, teaching soldiers ceramic sculpture. Much of the artist's inspiration came from animals and nature; one of her best known works, entitled 'Night', exhibited at the World's Fair in 1939, which depicts the panther Bagheera from Rudyard Kipling's 'Jungle Book', was later set in the Boston Public Garden in 1986. Amongst many projects and commissions for public sculpture and reliefs, often working alongside her husband, architect Eero Saarinen, she designed the 'Screaming Eagle' sculpture for the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, as well as producing reliefs for the WPA. Saarinen's broad range within the cultural arts also extended to the literary field, when in 1935 she illustrated 'Picture Book Zoo', followed by the publication of her 1946 children's book 'Who am I?' This engaging bronze sculpture, created by Saarinen circa 1939, depicts a beautifully detailed woman playing the accordion; her stance, leaning back and slightly contrapposto beneath the weight of the accordion, right foot peeking out from her long pleated dress, implicates movement and musical sound, as she handles the extending instrument, moving fingers hands along the keys. Markings include the artist's signature [Lillian Swann] and [Roman Bronze Works]. This piece is in overall good condition, with some wear on wood base.
A vintage bronze sculpture by noted artist Lawrence Fane (1933-2008) and signed "Fane"in bronze. Lawrence Fane was born in Kansas City, Mo. in 1933 and apprenticed under the sculptor George Demetrios. He lived in Rome for a period and traveled Europe before returning to the United States and eventually settling in New York where he exhibited extensively throughout his lifetime and was reviewed by such notable publications as The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and Art in America, among others. He taught for a time at the Rhode Island School of Design but joined Queens college upon moving to New York and remained part of their faculty from 1966 to 1996 while guest lecturing at Yale, Duke and Boston College, among others. His work tends toward abstraction and many of his pieces are large scale public works. His smaller pieces can be found in galleries and museums throughout the United States. At The Whitney Biennial Exhibition in 2006 he contributed to the Mark di Suvero Peace Tower. He passed away in 2008.
