  • Provenance

    Barry Friedman Ltd., New York
    Acquired from the above by the present owner, 2006

  • Catalogue Essay

    The present lot was produced by the artist as a “commande speciale” at the owner’s request. Originally, the table was designed to have simple, lightly decorated feet and the present example was revised to include more elaborate decoration. Eventually, Ingrid Donat decided to produce the whole edition in the same way, with more ornamentation or double feet, hence the title, “Pieds Doubles.”

  • Artist Bio

    Ingrid Donat

    Swedish • 1957

    Swedish-born Ingrid Donat has lived and worked in Paris since 1975, when she moved there to study sculpture at the École des Beaux-Arts. Encounters with Sylva Bernt (the companion of André Arbus) and Diego Giacometti introduced her to the art of cast bronze furniture. Working in this most ancient of artistic media, and drawing inspiration from Art Deco design, Gustav Klimt patterning and tribal tattoos, Donat blends traditional sources to craft refreshingly original and evocative furniture that invites closer inspection.
