The TORSO
Sku :  9 from 15
Harrison McIntosh, at age 97 is one of Claremont’s most recognized artists. His ceramic
Art works have found homes in museums, galleries and private collections all over the world.
His major pieces sell for thousands of dollars and are rarely available on the art market today.
Now you have a unique opportunity to own one of Harrison’s most significant artworks. In 1939 Harrison created a magnificent torso, which was exhibited, in 1946, at the Los Angeles County Museum. The TORSO was prominently displayed in the exhibition Harrison McIntosh: A Timeless Legacy at the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona.
In the early 1940’s Harrison made a plaster mold of the 21” tall TORSO and produced two castings. Since that &me, the mold sat untouched in Harrison’s storage facility.
To assist the Claremont Museum of Art in its rejuvenation, Harrison McIntosh agreed to supervise the creation of 15 castings of the TORSO. Each TORSO is cast by art professor John Hopkins at Riverside Community College using clay donated from Laguna Clay in the City of Industry, and Sam Maloof Woodworking is producing the wooden bases for each TORSO.
Most of the sales price of the TORSO will go to the Claremont Museum of Art. With your help, The Claremont Museum of Art will be revitalized and you will have a wonderful piece of art in your collection.
