PROVENANCE

Gift to Jon Corbino from Ludvig W. Durchanek

Estate of Jon Corbino

 

 

Ludvik W. (Louis) Durchanek, a renowned sculptor was born in Vienna Austria. He studied painting with Umberto Romano and Jon Corbino at the Art Students’ League in New York. Durchanek exhibited his work at the National Academy of Design, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Albany Institute of History & Art, MOMA, Rhode Island School of Design, Silvermine Guild, Denver Art Museum., Los Angeles Museum of Art, St. Louis Art Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts etc.

The estate of Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and other notable collectors own work by Ludvik W. (Louis) Durchanek. Durchanek visited his teacher Jon Corbino at his home in Rockport, MA in the 1960s and gave him this sculpture. The piece of masking tape on the verso contained an inscription by Durchanek to my father that has faded and now illegible. This copper sculpture has not been polished in 50+ years.
