Welded bronze statue, Walking Man, by Abbott Lawrence Pattison (American, 1916-1999), unsigned, label dated May 1, 1984 affixed to base, overall: 66''h x 18''w x 22''d. Provenance: Purchased in Chicago, IL; to current owner by family descent

Check out the cool widget the site has to drag and magnify pictures.

We own a couple pieces by this Chicago artist and would love to own more. What do you think?
