Two (2) carved sculptures attributed to Jack Kershaw. 1st item: Abstract carved limestone sculpture of a man's head, attributed to Jack Kershaw (Tennessee, 1913-2010) 15"H. This piece, found in the estate of artist/attorney Jack Kershaw, shows similarities to works by fellow Nashville sculptor William Edmondson (1874-1951). Kershaw was Edmondson's WPA supervisor in Nashville, introduced Edmondson to Myron King of Lyzon Gallery in Nashville, and is known to have owned several of Edmondson's works (all of which are believed to have been given away prior to Kershaw's death). This piece may have been Kershaw's attempt to study or pay tribute to Edmondson's distinctive sculptural style. 2nd item: Wooden modernist sculpture of a male head, mounted on a stepped absract wooden base. 8 3/4" H. Provenance: Estate of Jack Kershaw, Nashville, Tenn. Condition: 1st item: Signs of wear and exposure to elements. 2nd item: Some scattered abrasions and general wear.
