Description

The biblical Solomon might not have recognized himself in Alexander Archipenko’s Cubist-influenced bronze, but for modern-day viewers the work is richly evocative. There’s a stern dignity and perhaps a hint of self-righteousness in the king’s bolt upright pose with the points of his robe or cloak framing his head.
