A 3D wall sculpture showing an inviting scene - light is on, pillows are soft, with a forest bouquet of flowers on the night stand, and that ticking clock make one really sleepy. Signed on the lower right, C. Jere- This mid century artwork is an amazing display on a wall or freestanding. Brass. Great condition.

The common man’s Brutalist, in a sense, Curtis Jere produced a wide array of metal wall sculptures and lamps throughout the Mid 20th Century. Rather than focusing on prickly, nightmarish visions that characterizes other Brutalist work of the era, Curtis Jere designs are candidly pleasant in their subject matter. 

The brainchild of brother-in-laws Jerry Fels and Curtis Freiler, Curtis Jere was founded in California in 1964. Prior to founding Curtis Jere, Fels and Freiler ran a costume jewelry company, Renoir & Matisse. When a fire destroyed Renoir & Matisse in 1963, the duo decided to start over in the decor industry. They called their new brand Artisan House and adopted the nom-de-plume Curtis Jere for the brand’s metal decor line. Their self-prescribed goal for Jere? To produce “gallery-quality art for the masses.”
