Large hand-carved “Dream within a Dream” sculpture in Italian marble by Naomi Feinberg, American 1960’s.
Naomi Feinberg was a New York based sculptor who worked primarily in stone. She began sculpting in the 1940’s and became affiliated with artist group Studio 725 (NYC) which was a consortium of woman artists working in Union Square NYC. A relative late comer to the art world, Naomi Feinberg emerged as highly accomplished, multi-faceted artist who juggled architectural coherence with a preoccupation with the human form, to create works that are both experimental and primitive.
Provenance: The personal collection of the artist and then her family after her death. This piece is part of the Lobel Modern's exhibition: Naomi Feinberg: A Woman Sculpting in a Man's World.
