Triad 1969

by Irving Marantz, 1912-1973

The bronze sculpture at 475 Park Avenue South shows three cubist figures in an embrace. The piece was inspired by Pablo Picasso’s “Three Musicians,” but it may also be a reference to the Cohen brothers, the developers who commissioned the work and ┬ádeveloped the building. Though Irving Matantz was primarily a painter, he worked as a sculptor in the last five years of his life. Triad was his second major outdoor work as a sculptor.
