Lot Essay

‘My images don’t get near what you see in real life. The world is so remarkable and astonishing and surprising that you don’t need to exaggerate. What exists out-there is just mind-boggling.’ (D. Hanson, quoted in Duane Hanson, Sculptures of the American Dream, exh. cat., ARKEN Museum for Moderne Kunst, Copenhagen, 2007, p. 77).
