Harry Bertoia, Standard Oil
The Standard Oil Commission
The publication coincides with the exhibition and auction of masterworks by Harry Bertoia from the Standard Oil Commission. In 1974, at the base of Edward Durell Stone’s modernist structure on Chicago’s lakefront, Harry Bertoia composed the largest installation of sounding sculptures. Three large-scale Sonambients, among the best to come to the market, along with a selection of tabletop sculptures and maquettes from the commission make up this historic collection. This volume documents some of Bertoia’s influential public commissions, including the story behind the Standard Oil Commission and its many details.
