Lot Essay

"Duplicating the power and compression of Mr. Chamberlain's full-size pieces, they nonetheless have a delicacy and intimacy his big work necessarily lacks. Pieces like Blanket Appliance, in which one tiny expanse of white metal dotted with tiny red and green drips makes a whispered aside to Pollock, might also be seen as the late-20th-century answer to Faberge's eggs."
—R. Smith, "Long Island Shows: Small, Closely Focused and Old," The New York Times, 12 August 1992, p. C22.
