Bronze sculpture of a figure, perhaps hugging a guitar or bass (or, abstracted second figure?), numbered 57/300 and signed at bottom by artist I. STOLOFF (IRMA STOLOFF, New York, 20th century). The work is 11 1/4" in height, sits on a 2" high black plinth, and weighs six pounds. Condition is excellent. You would appreciate the style if you admire the work of Henry Moore, Kenneth Armitage, Archipenko, or Barbara Hepworth. There is some information on the obviously talented artist, who according to census records would have been born around 1900. She studied at the Art Students League with Alexander Stirling Calder, Boardman Robinson, Howard Giles, Yasuo Kuniyoshi & Alexander Archipenko. In the 1950's Stoloff evidently worked in Mexico. She was active in the art world in later years, with memberships in a number of organizations, and was also a teacher herself. Her work is in a number of American museum collections. The work may date to the 1970's I would think.
