A beautifully illustrated, concise critical analysis of the art, careers, and reception of the husband-wife team of artists known as Les Lalanne François-Xavier (1927-2008) and Claude (1925-2019) Lalanne were a husband-wife team of artists who created inventive and often whimsical works that have been widely admired and collected since the 1960s. This book presents a carefully selected group of scultpures that focus on a shared preoccupation of the artists: the transformation of natural forms to serve new purposes, such as François-Xavier's giant grasshopper sculpture that opens into a bar and Claude's bench made of galvanized metal branches and vines such that it remains as much a forest as a place to sit. Critical analysis explores the full breadth of the artists' careers; considers the complex issues of reception and categorization of their work; and prompts a reevaluation of the place their art occupies in the context of art museums, all while encouraging readers to consider relationships among nature, art, and their own encounters with both.

The Lalannes' charming, dreamy, and surrealistic body of functional sculptures, once a guarded secret for exclusive collectors such as Yves Saint Laurent and the Agnellis, is celebrated in full in this stunning new book. The legendary husband-and-wife artist team has been the inspiration for high-society collectors and decorators, such as Pierre Bergé, Serge Gainsbourg, Peter Marino, Jane Holzer, and Reed Krakoff for over five decades. Crossing over many audiences - from interior design to fine art to high society, the works of the Lalannes have aspirational yet broad appeal. Their surreal flock of sheep sculpture is now de rigeur for any important collection, while their functional hippopotamus wet bar sells for millions of dollars at auction. Highly collected and promoted by an important group of art insiders, Lalanne works are often the focus of the well-curated room, as seen in many magazine covers. This book on their work will appeal to decorators, designers, artists, and all those who love beautiful art objects.

Revered and collected by design connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike, the work of husband-and-wife team Claude and Fran�ois-Xavier Lalanne defies categorization. Crossing between sculpture and the functional object, the designs by the Lalannes--such as a hammered brass rhino-cum-desk--are whimsical and elegant with references to ancient French craftsmanship and twentieth-century Surrealism. This is the first intimate visual biography of their work, as well as the studio and life of the Lalannes. Never-before-seen photographs of their studio and home life--where study models and unfinished sculptures reveal a true portrait of the artists at work--are combined with the finished works shown in galleries and gardens, including an installation on the grassy median of Park Avenue in New York and their largest outdoor exhibition at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden outside of Miami. Transforming visual imagery of flora and fauna into delightfully sensual, dreamlike objects, the designs by the Lalannes have been sought by the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Jacques Grange, and Peter Marino. This publication makes their work and process understandable, and ultimately accessible.
