    Acquired directly from the artist;

    Claude Lalanne's sculpture, Petite Fille à la Poule, 1984, is a compelling example of the celebrated artist's approach to the figure, using overlapping layers and diverse surface textures to present evocative forms. Here, in large scale, Lalanne's Girl with Hen is placed atop a pedestal of classical form, raising the simple construct of child holding a hen, into a more formal dialogue with historical art traditions.
