Peter Grippe (August 11, 1912 – October 18, 2002) was an American sculptor, printmaker, and painter. As a sculptor, he worked in bronze, terracotta, wire, plaster, and found objects. His "Monument to Hiroshima" series (1963) used found objects cast in bronze sculptures to evoke the chaotic humanity of the Japanese city after its incineration by atomic bomb. Other Grippe Surrealist sculptural works address less warlike themes, including that of city life. However, his expertise extended beyond sculpture to ink drawings, watercolor painting, and printmaking (intaglio). He joined and later directed Atelier 17, the intaglio studio founded in London and moved to New York at the beginning of World War II by its founder, Stanley William Hayter (Courtesy of Wikipedia).

Condition / Notes: This lot shows well with moderate signs of age and wear, including a recent minor repair.

Maxwell taught at the Houston Museum of Art and the University of Houston, lectured and exhibited work in Europe sponsored by the U.S. Information Agency and received commissions for works in public spaces such as a wall sculpture in the Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City and the free-standing sculpture for the lobby of the Stark County Library in Canton, Ohio. Maxwell's work has been displayed in galleries across the United States, England, Switzerland, France, Canada, and Australia. His permanent collection is housed at the Arkansas Arts Center in Litter Rock. (Courtesy Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture)
