Here is an amazing and one of a kind contemporary sculpture by artist Stanley Lipman, circa 1970s. Standing at 68” tall and 42” wide this piece makes its own statement and is an impressive piece of modern art. Sculpted from solid steel this piece is museum-worthy.
The original purchase details:
The original owner of this particular sculpture said he bought this sculpture at an art benefit auction sometimes in the 1970s and stated that Stan Lipman was at the auction. The original owner stated that Lipman was a little upset that it sold for less than he expected as he thought it should have gone for double what it sold for at that time. Most of Lipman's sculptures had titles or names but there is no sign of a name on this one.
(This information was supplied by a third party who now owns the home this sculpture belonged to.)
More details on the artist:
Artist – Stanley Lipman (1931-1986)
Stanley Lipman was an award-winning artist from Lancaster Pennsylvania in the mid-century era, he was best known locally for his sculpture “Phoenix” that had been placed in his local Lancaster County shopping center until 1980 when the mall was remodeled. He began sculpting in 1966 at the age of 35. Inspired by contemporary sculptor Davis Smith, he worked primarily in metal, and later he enjoyed working with mostly steel and bronze. Lipman was known to have brought students to the scrap yards where he would salvage metal for his work. He won numerous awards and has shown his work in Washington, D.C., New York, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Harrisburg, and Reading, PA.
Lipman described his work as contemporary and impressionistic. Lipman’s work was also displayed at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. and Le Salon des Nation in Paris. The International Sculpture Conference recognized Lipman as a “Master of Modern Sculpture”.
His work during the mid-century era was bought by celebrities Dinah Shore, Buddy Hackett, and Ben Vereen. Outside of Lancaster County Lipman created a large metal sculpture for the University of Southern California’s Cinema Arts Theatre. There are known to have been about 3,000 sculptures created by Lipman during his lifetime.
(The information above was found during online research for Stanley Lipman and through his newspaper obituary that detailed his career as an artist and a local teacher.)
