Of black Belgian marble, this modernist sculpture by Lily Ente was created in 1954 and is entitled "Head". It was deaccessioned from the Chrysler Museum of Art in 1991 and his been in private collections since that time. Measuring 11 1/2" x 13 1/2" x 5 1/4", it is of triangular shape and depicts an abstracted head, with varying surfaces of polished marble that reflect the light and create slight shadows, making an intriguing and evocative form. Interesting from every angle, it demonstrates the artful eye and great skill of the artist.
