      Awesome abstracted bronze sculpture by Chicago Artist Alice Richheimer-Culbert (American 1911-1991). Abstracted bust with feet and hands standing on a well-made black lacquer swivel base for 360 degree viewing. This work is signed on the back of the base A. Richheimer indicating this was made in the early part of her career while married to Coffee Entrepreneur Robert Richheimer and prior to her marriage to Richard Culbert. Alice Richeimer-Culbert-Wolk completed many commissions of sculpture around the world. Her works can be found in public spaces across the world and throughout the Chicago area, including Peace Museum in Hiroshima, Japan, the New Orleans Community Center, the Woodstock Cultural Center, Judson College in Elgin and Kankakee Community College. Additionally religious pieces are exhibited at Temple Menorah in Chicago and Temple B'nai Torah in Highland Park. Measures in 21.5in height x 13.5in width x 12in depth overall and 18in height sculpture only. Excellent condition.

      "Several examples can be seen in the exhibition of sculpture by Alice A. Culbert at One Illinois Center, 111 E. Wacker, through Sept. 15. Her Cor-Ten steel "Infinity" is an intriguing complex of planes that would be good at any size properly scaled to its environment. Most interesting is Culbert's "Environmental Maquette" a cool, calm piece in aluminum that offers a simple maze enclosed by tall planes. It would be a delight to walk through, if scaled 40 or 50 feet high. The work called "Cascade" (see photo), a polished steel rectangular tube that is set at a dramatic angle with slices peeling off at both ends, would need simplification if any larger than its 66-inch height. This diversified show presents many sides of Culbert's art, including her sense of humor. "Squares Down" 11-feet long, begins with a square and continues with a series of perspective illusions of squares at various angles. A steel cube on legs, labeled "Open me" turns out to be a twittering machine. Another cube, coming apart like a cardboard carton, reveals a big hairy foot emerging."
