condition

Overall very good condition. These extraordinary mirrors represent a unique pair that were commissioned directly from the artist in 1986. The bronze surfaces of the mirrors have recently been sensitively cleaned by a professional metalwork conservator. When viewed firsthand, the bronze displays a warm and nuanced golden palette accented by naturalistically placed rose-colored leaves. The bronze of both mirrors with occasional scattered extremely minor surface scratches, abrasions, and minor discolorations consistent with age and gentle handling, and with some occasional minor casting flaws inherent in the making and not at all visually detractive. The galvanized copper leaves are incredibly delicate, capturing all of the nuance and detail of a natural leaf. The surfaces of the leaves with a rich red undertone, which heightens the visual impact of the mirror. The leaves with some minor holes and surface irregularities inherent in the making, which further enhances the naturalism of the work. The mirrored glass with some scattered extremely minor and fine surface scratches. An incredibly dynamic pair of unique mirrors which display the romantic naturalism that is central to Claude Lalanne’s work. The mirrors are absolutely dazzling when experienced in person, presenting with dramatic scale and strong visual presence.
