Sunnylands Spotlight: Bertoia's "Peacock"
"Peacock" is a kinetic sculpture by Harry Bertoia. Unlike more classical works in the Sunnylands Collection, such as Rodin's "Eve," "Peacock" is often in motion, its hundreds of wire fronds waving in the breeze.
The Annenbergs acquired this sculpture in 1967 from the University of Pennsylvania. Writing to the school's dean of fine arts, Ambassador Annenberg expressed his pleasure at securing "this unique work, which both my wife and I are happy to have acquired."
