Claude and Francois-Xavier Lalanne are quite the popular duo this fall. Not only are Francois-Xavier’s sheep sculptures installed at a former gas station in Chelsea (up now until November 24 due to high demand) but the pair is also exhibiting at Sotheby’s in New York. Paul Kasmin, their longtime gallerist, and Michael Shvo, an avid collector, curated both exhibitions together.
“Lalanne: The Poetry of Sculpture” showcases the couple’s most iconic works, including their familiar sheep Moutons de Laine and immense bronze bear La Grande Ourse. Also on view are several never-before-seen works by Francois-Xavier. Claude’s momentous bronze sculpture, Nouveau Lapin de Victoire, over seven feet tall, is also on view.
“Lalanne: The Poetry of Sculpture” is on view at the New York S|2 Private Sales Gallery through November 22. The Sheep Station is open to the public at the former Getty filling station in West Chelsea (and is hard to miss) through November 24.
