East End Venus, Jim Dine

Litera
A
Description

1989, patinated bronze in two parts

Dine's East End Venus was inspired by a gift shop plaster replica of the ancient Venus de Milo statue (now resident in the Louvre); the first thing Dine did was break off its head. Hand-worked and rough-hewn conveying intense emotion and sustained vigour, East End Venus is not unlike love itself.

The Broad Family, Xavier Corberó

Litera
7
Description

1991, basalt stone

Take a look at The Broad Family and the abstract forms slowly-but-surely evolve into a family portrait of two parents with a child; there’s even a dog with a ball. Look closer still and two highly polished shoes can be seen peeking from under the child's clothes.

Ganapathi and Devi, Stephen Cox RA

Description
