Two Dancing Figures 1989

by Keith Haring, 1958-1990

Though Keith Haring is better known for his paintings, but he started making sculptures in 1985. In 1989 he made “Untitled (Two Dancing Figures)” from aluminum, which was then painted. The figures in the sculpture seem like they danced out of Haring’s canvas; they are similar in style to his drawings and street art. Dancing figures were common throughout Haring’s work, including the figures he painted on the Bowery Mural. Haring liked sculpture, since he felt it was a more permanent medium than painting. “Untitled (Two Dancing Figures)” was part of the Lever House Art Collection from 2005-2006, it is now installed at the corner of Pearl and State Streets.
