Arman (Armand Pierre Fernandez)


After finishing school Arman (born 1928 in Nice as Armand Pierre Fernandez) moved to Paris to study archaeology and oriental art. However, in 1953, having returned to Nice, he decided to dedicate himself to abstract art and began collaborating with Yves Klein, something that would turn out to be of great importance to his artistic development. After a misspelling of his name in an exhibition catalogue at legendary Galerie Iris Clert in Paris, where the last letter ”d” in his name was missing, Arman decided to sign his works ”Arman” thereafter.


At the end of the 1950s he began working with sculptures, first in the series Accumulations, using everyday objects, and then in Poubelles, which were made from rubbish.


In 1960 he was one of the founders, together with Jean Tinguely and Daniel Spoerri, amongst others, of the Nouveau Réalisme movement. Later on César, Niki de Saint Phalle and Christo would also join. The group were against the Art Informel of the time and would become the French equivalent of the British and American Pop Art movement.


570 Arman "Liberté de Clinton" Estimate 50 050 – 60 060 EUR




574 Arman, Untitled Estimate 8 008 – 10 010 EUR




577 Arman "Guns controlled" Estimate 12 513 – 15 015 EUR



In the years that followed his work was shown at both the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, in 1964, and at the 1968 Venice Biennale. In the seventies he created assemblages using concrete and car parts in a collaboration with the carmaker Renault. In 1973 he became an American citizen and moved permanently to New York.





579 Arman "Blue and blue rain" Estimate 20 020 – 25 025 EUR


During the last twenty years of his life Arman continued to work in different materials and techniques. He has executed several monumental works such as, for example, the bronze piece A la République (1984) at Palais de l’Elysée in Paris and the piece Espoir de Paix (1995) in Beirut; an assemblage of concrete and tanks. It is still the largest sculpture in the world.
