Signed "Lequire" in oval to back of chair and numbered 2/12. 13 1/2" H x 14" W x 6" D. Biography: Alan LeQuire began his artistic career at the age of eleven, when he crafted his first objects in copper and tin. His early influences include Tennessee sculptors Olen Bryant, Puryear Mims, and William Edmondson. Lequire graduated from Vanderbilt University and spent a year of apprenticeship with Milton Hebald, an American sculptor living in Italy, and afterward studied figurative sculpture with Peter Agostini in the MFA program of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Lequire is best known today for his monumental public sculptures in Middle Tennessee including "Athena" at the Nashville Parthenon and "Musica" on Music Row.
