Nohra Haime Gallery gives intimate look at Niki's work
"Selected historical sculptures by Niki de Saint Phalle are on view at the Nohra Haime Gallery from August 2 through August 29, 2012. The exhibition includes Dawn, one of her signature and richly colored Nanas, along with her mystical figures, Double Tête and Horus et Sa Grace. Two examples of Saint Phalle's furniture, such as Clarice Chaise Femme and Charly, also are featured. Providing a distinct and more intimate look into the artist's ambitious and inventive work, this exhibition runs in conjunction with Niki de Saint Phalle on Park Avenue, a major site-specific installation including nine monumental sculptures standing along Park Avenue from 52nd to 60th Streets."
