Description/

A rare forged sculpture front console of highly desirable two-door, 60 inch scale. These forged front consoles were designed and built out of welded steel with forged three-dimensional elements in the Evan’s New Hope, Pennsylvania workshop specifically as custom commissions. They are considered to be the most successful and most highly sought after pieces from the Evans studio.

This console is signed in welded script “PAUL EVANS 70 D Cool” – the added names are Dorsey Reading, who most likely built the case and forged elements, and Robert “Cool” Thomas Sr., the studio assistant who most likely painted the front. Cool was known to have developed with Evans’ a rich and subdued palette for these pieces based on the local New Hope landscape. Cool had been studio assistant to Pennsylvania Impressionist Edward W. Redfield until meeting Paul Evans. He worked in the Evans Studio, bringing his deft sense of color and technique to the finishes of many of the studio works. Cool left the Studio in 1970 making this one of the last pieces he worked on.

designer

Paul Evans (1931-1987) was an iconic American furniture designer, sculptor, and artist who is famous for his contributions to the American Craft Movement of the 1970s and for his work with the influential American manufacturer Directional Furniture. Paul Evans’ Brutalist-inspired sculpted metal furnishings distinguish him from others in the world of design. Performer Lenny Kravitz, a collector of Evans pieces, describes his distinctive work as “stunningly beautiful, stunningly ugly, stunningly tacky, [and] stunningly sophisticated.”
