Cleo Hartwig Dove Sculpture



Cleo Hartwig dove sculpture Offered for sale is a Mid-Century Modern sculpture of a resin dove on a square base by American artist Cleo Hartwig. This piece is signed on the underside of the tail. Hartwig belongs to a line of direct carvers which includes both Jose de Creeft, with whom she studied, and Vincent Glinsky, her husband. With this technique the artist carves directly into the materials, without the use of intermediary steps. The conception and execution of the work is influenced by the density, veining, color, texture, and shape of the material. Hartwig belongs to the generation of the 1930s and 1940s who advanced opportunities for women artists. She was an early member of the National Association of Women Artists (eventually serving as Vice President), and the New York Society of Women Artists (eventually serving as Recording Secretary). She is regarded as a member of The New York School, and her work was featured in the TV documentary, Women of the First Wave; Elders of the Century. Cleo Hartwig’s papers are held at the Smithsonian Institution’s Archives of American Art. Her works are in such collections as the Newark Museum, Montclair Art Museum, the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Detroit Institute of Art and the Smithsonian Institution. Measures: Base, 3.36" D by 3.75" W.
