Description

Maria Pergay
Cabinet with Marble Disc, c. 1974
Black lacquered wood, marble
25.59 H x 62.99 x 23.62 inches
65 H x 160 x 60 cm

This cabinet is a part of series of lacquer works designed in the early 1970s. We saw this particular piece, which is likely unique, more than ten years ago and has been out of the market until now. Incorporating her tendency for natural specimens, the cabinet exhibits a key element of her oeuvre: an intense engagement with the exotic and the baroque.
