Special Notice

Artist's Resale Right ("Droit de Suite"). Artist's Resale Right Regulations 2006 apply to this lot, the buyer agrees to pay us an amount equal to the resale royalty provided for in those Regulations, and we undertake to the buyer to pay such amount to the artist's collection agent.

Lot Essay

It is likely that the present work is unique as the sculptor's record book only lists one cast of Trough Torii, which would be numbered 1/6. It is possible, however, that another cast was made and not recorded.

We are very grateful to Judith LeGrove for her assistance in preparing this catalogue entry.
