This compelling sculpture is by Chicago Artist Alice Richheimer (American 1911-1991). It is an abstracted figure in bronze and steel mounted on a base of wood and metal. The strong linear form is accentuated by tremendous surface interest. This work is signed on the wood portion of the base "A. Richheimer" indicating this is an earlier piece created while she was married to Coffee Entrepreneur Robert Richheimer. She later married Richard Culbert and upon moving to California added the last name Wolk, In addition to independent work, Alice Richeimer-Culbert-Wolk created many large scale public commissions including Peace Museum in Hiroshima, Japan, the New Orleans Community Center, the Woodstock Cultural Center, and several in the Chicago area.
