Historical Description

Striking paint strokes of white, black, red, orange, and blue lay atop a violin and case in only a manner Arman would be able to get away with. Chaotic and lyrical, it captures an intense sense of kinetic energy that draws upon the oratory and visual senses. This work entrances the viewer with its multitude of layers and brilliant utilization of subject.

From the 1988 exhibition “Trio for Strings”, this hand-painted violin and case is hand-signed by Fernandez Arman (Nice, 1928 - New York, 2005) in black ink in the lower left of the violin.
