About this artwork
Renowned for sculptures depicting absurdly large, displaced, and decontextualized everyday objects—such as Chicago’s Batcolumn (installed at 600 West Madison Street), Oldenburg earned his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1954. Radically different from his iconic sculptures in subject matter, this drawing showcases the artist’s considerable graphic skills and powers of invention.
