DESCRIPTION:  Internationally renowned sculptor John Henry created this pivotal sculpture in 1981. The beautifully patinaed Cor-ten steel used by the artist in "Bette Davis Eyes" is the material of choice for collectors who desire the lowest levels of maintenance in works permanently sited outdoors.

Provenance: Exhibited in 1981 at ConStruct, Parsippany, NJ, the work was later acquired directly from the artist by private collectors in the Chicago area. It was installed on their property until this earlier year.

In his article titled: Arresting sculpture dots the corporate landscape, in the New York Times on July 19th, 1981, John Caldwell says of the eight major sculptures by Henry, Di Suvero, Snelson, Ginnever and others :”their size alone assures their visual impact”. About “Bette Davis Eyes”: “the complex and graceful structure reveals itself fully only when the viewer walks around it”.
