Description:
William Hodd (Bill) Mc Elcheran RCA 1927 - 1999 Canadian Career Woman bronze sculpture initialed, editioned 1/9 and dated 1995 28 1/2 x 7 1/4 x 10 in 72.4 x 18.4 x 25.4cm Provenance: Private Collection, Vancouver William Mc Elcheran is well known for his bronze businessmen, but here we have a rare businesswoman. With his businessmen, Mc Elcheran took a satirical view, showing them bustling through their world, their round volumetric bodies clothed in the conventional business costume, the essence of “the Everyman, the ubiquitous non-hero,” as he put it. But with Career Woman, we sense a more empathetic point of view; he presents her through her stance and expression as poised, positive, yet determined—a true modern woman. Like the businessmen, she wears the uniform of her world—sleek raincoat, briefcase and high heels—but is elegant and stylish. Mc Elcheran’s abilities in bronze were exceptional. In 1975 he moved to Pietrasanta, Italy, to be close to a foundry there and artisans skilled in bronze casting. He lived there for a number of years, exhibiting in Pietrasanta’s International Sculpture Exhibition in 1977. In Career Woman, Mc Elcheran’s interest in classical sculpture shows in his sure handling of the folds of her coat in the back, which swing with the movement of her confident stride. The bronze base measures 10 1/4 x 10 1/2 x 1 inches.

Description:
William Hodd (Bill) McElcheran RCA 1927 - 1999 Canadian Businessman bronze sculpture initialed, editioned 2/9 and dated 1996 29 x 10 x 8 1/2 in 73.7 x 25.4 x 21.6cm Provenance: Private Collection, Vancouver William McElcheran trained in sculpture at the Ontario College of Art and was also an architectural designer. He started as a woodworker, specializing in art and furniture for churches. He rose to be chief designer for Bruce Brown and Brisely Architects, and worked on designing 23 churches and university buildings. He formed Daedalus Designs in 1973, the purpose of which was integrating sculpture with architecture. His best-known sculpture subject is the iconic businessman, shown caught in the whirl of his corporate life. As in Businessman, a quintessential McElcheran work, he depicted these men of commerce as robust and self-possessed, constantly in movement. Their conformity is indicated by their classic dress of overcoat, hat, suit and tie, carrying business paraphernalia such as briefcases. His viewpoint was both satirical and compassionate, drawing us to sympathize with them, as urbanites often feel caught in the frantic pace and roles of modern life. McElcheran�s businessmen can be seen in many public installations across Canada and in the United States, Germany, Italy and Japan. Please note: the bronze base measures 10 3/4 x 11 3/4 x 1 inches.

Description:
Lot # 078 William Hodd (Bill) McElcheran RCA 1927 - 1999 Canadian The Crowd bronze relief plaque initialed, editioned A/P 2/3 and dated 1981 17 x 17 x 3 in 43.2 x 43.2 x 7.6cm Provenance: Private Collection, Vancouver William McElcheran is well known for his iconic businessman images, portrayed individually, in small groups or in a crowd, as in this refined wall relief. He portrayed crowds in small-scale three-dimensional groups, editioned bronze wall reliefs or large-scale works such as the ceramic wall relief in the Dundas subway station in Toronto. McElcheran was a strong proponent of the integration of sculpture into architecture, and another crowd scene, a free-standing bronze relief, is installed at Toronto's John M. Kelly Library. Following a 1971 exhibition at Roberts Gallery that included relief works, a reviewer noted that McElcheran had studied Assyrian bas-reliefs, in which the position in society of the people portrayed was indicated by their clothing and posture. In The Crowd, the foreground figures are finely detailed, both men and women in their classic uniform of business, while in the background, detailing is indistinct and the figures anonymous. They march forward together, a symbol of progress and determination, radiating a quietly heroic stance in contrast to their conformity. Included with this lot is a plexiglass stand that measures 42 1/2 x 19 x 16 1/2 inches.
