Property from a Bluffton, SC Estate

Description:

Bob Bennett (CA, 1928-2003), Pebble Beach, 1986, Bronze, signed, dated and numbered 107/250 on tree, bronze sculpture of a tree. With Certificate of Authenticity from Bennett Sculpture, signed by artist.

Bob Bennett was born in Roseville, California. In the late 1960s at the beginning of his career, he and his twin brother, Tom Bennett were recognized for welded wire sculptures, which they began fashioning in the back of a service station they owned. Wanting to expand on their artistic vision, the brothers changed mediums, and in 1974 began to produce a new line of sculpture, which was cast and finished in highly polished bronze. Soon after, they started the Bennett Sculpture foundry and galleries, which included eleven galleries throughout the United States including Hawaii. However, in the late 1990s, the brothers divested themselves of their foundry and galleries so they could concentrate full time on their art. In April, 2003, Bob Bennett died. Tom continues to work in the medium, style and spirit he perfected with his brother Bob. Collectors include Presidents George Bush and Gerald Ford, Pope John II, Clint Eastwood, Sammy Davis Jr., Ray Charles, Sonny Bono, Sylvester Stallone, Tony Bennett, Diana Ross, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
