FOOTNOTES

  • In 1964 Robert Adams was commissioned to produce an open screen, 10 ft high, by the architect Dennis Lennon, to flank the staircase of a stunning new glass showroom for Sekers Fabrics, at 190 Sloan Street, London. Alistair Grieve informs us that the screen ‘was composed of ranks of vertical bronzed-steel tubes and slats, stacked in horizontal layers, varied by occasional slants, disjunctions and breaks in the spacing. The main ground-floor showroom could be viewed through it. Five small maquettes, painted black and gold, relate to this commission and there is at least one lithograph of a similar composition’. Sadly the screen is no longer there having been removed when the company changed ownership. This maquette relates to the five known ones Grieve mentions (Nos 466-470). (Alistair Grieve, The Sculpture of Robert Adams, The Henry Moore Foundation in association with Lund Humphries, London, 1992, p.102)
