Sculptural Ceramic Male Torso Lamps by Gwen Lux a Pair from 1948 Mid Century
Incredible lamps by world renown sculptor Gwen Lux whose commissions are in such historical sites as Radio City Music Hall, General Motors Technical Center, The McGraw-Hill Building in Chicago, and the SS United States. These lamps are ceramic of a slight male torso with a grey ceramic base on a weighted oval steel hammered base. There is a lovely patina on these lamps giving them a true ancient Greek sculptural look. There is some ceramic loss on the base. Lamps are 25" to top of torso, 37" to top of finial. Gwen Lux created in a period with other incredible female artists including: Louise Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun, Mary Cassatt, Georgia O'Keefe, Frida Kahlo, Helen Frankenthaler, and Judy Chicago.
