Claes Oldenburg framed drawing on mat board picturing a woman hanging from a wire or rope, held up by a pulley. The Hanging Woman is a recurring motif in Oldenburg’s work, with sculptural representations such as Street Chick (Hanging), 1960, and in print as in his 1976 series of erotic etchings. This drawing is sketched confidently in marker, scribbles encircling the woman’s inverted body. Her eyes are two starry asterisks rendering her face an expressionless mask. This drawing is signed by the artist with initials, lower right in marker.

Silver gilt frame 50 x 37

Condition: significant aging of mat board’s tone, numerous creases and discolorations as photographed.


The Artist

Claes Oldenburg

A very public artist, Claes Oldenburg is the artist behind a number of high profile public sculptures seen in cities in the United States. His works are typically highly creative and include the clothespin near City Hall in Philadelphia, a giant rubber stamp in Cleveland, and a giant tube of lipstick on caterpillar tracks at Yale University. The Swedish-American artist studied art history and literature at Yale University between 1946 to 1950 and was a member of the Pop Art movement in the 1960s. A prize winning artist, Oldenburg has had his work displayed at the Whitney, the Guggenheim, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the National Gallery.
