Monday Morning Muse(s): Femme Assise and Coquette


This patinated bronze sculpture by Ukrainian-born avant-garde artist Alexander Archipenko joined the collection in 2001. Archipenko developed a sculptural form of Cubism, drawing influence from Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque.


This print by Archipenko – Coquette – joined the collection in 1955. Perhaps best known for his sculptures, Archipenko is also remembered for his ‘sculpto-paintings,’ which experimented with negative spaces and hollow voids.
