Condition: excellent condition overall. All elements are present and stable. There are tonal and textural variations to the surface, inherent to the artist’s working method and chosen media. There is minor evidence of oxidation evident in the crevices, visible upon close inspection.

Judith Brown 12/17/31 - 5/11/92 was a 20th century sculptor and artisan who created wearable statement jewelry in silver and brass. Judith Brown was drawn to images of the body in motion and its effect on the cloth surrounding it. She worked in a range of mediums and at one point in her career welded crushed automobile scrap metal into energetic moving torsos, horses and flying draperies.

One of the things that madeJudy stand out as an artist was her ability to work in many different mediums. Some of this was by choice, and sometimes it was by necessity. Her surroundings often dictated what medium she could work with at any given time. After all, you can't bring your welding equipment to Rome, Italy!JudithBrown attended Sarah Lawrence College of New York (B.A., 1954) where she learned welding from her teacher, Theodore Roszak, a pioneering abstract expressionist sculptor.
