"The Whimsical World of Les Lalanne"

sotheby_lalanne_0030Loved reading about Claude Lalanne, her Parisian panache and artistic pursuits who is (along with her late husband François-Xavier Lalanne and real estate mogul Michael Shvo), behind The Sheep Station installation in Chelsea. The installation consists of 25 sheep sculptures inhabiting a grassy pasture of a former gas station at the corner of West 24th Street and 10th Avenue. The sculptures, made of epoxy and bronze, are by Claude's late husband. Now, at the ripe age of 89, Claude is still going at it with a recent trip to New York to help promote a new venture. At the end of this month, Sotheby's will present a selling exhibition of works by Claude and her late husband amidst a backdrop of moss flooring and ivy-covered walls. Click here to learn more.
