Historical Description

Exploring the formal advantages of sculpture, Arman (Nice, 1928 – New York, 2005) offers a detailed study of multiple saxophones which divide revealing a repetition of the same form. With each additional saxophone, Arman introduces a new variant, creating a melodic quality, punctuated by slight alterations of pitch. The artist's extreme attention to the technical aspects of the instrument reveal his love of music and the emotional range evoked by the distinct tones of this particular instrument.

Created in 1994, this work is entitled Double Châssis and is cast in bronze by Bocquel, Bréauté (France), who also served as the publisher for the work. The sculpture is embossed on the upper portion of the base. The signature is etched into the bronze base by Fernandez Arman (Nice, 1928 – New York, 2005) and numbered 45/140 by publisher Bocquel along the side.
