Description

Triangle at Rest Red Earrings

Made of solid brass electro-plated with a non-tarnishing, silver finish and giclee overprint, these colorful earrings feature an abstract design of a red circle in a triangle inspired by the geometric forms in Wassily Kandinsky’s artwork.

Such artists as Alexander Calder and Ellsworth Kelly took these elements and created a whole new world.

They have hypo-allergenic ear wires and hang approximately 1 ¾” long.

Reflective of the many modern architectural elements seen in the Metropolitan Opera House.

History

About The Metropolitan Opera

Founded in 1883, the Metropolitan Opera moved to its Lincoln Center home in 1966.  

The opera house was designed by Wallace K. Harrison. Five distinctive arches clad in white travertine form the entrance. The lobby is dominated by a cantilevered stairway, two murals by Marc Chagall, and 11 crystal chandeliers resembling constellations or starbursts.

The two paintings by Marc Chagall decorate the front lobby. On the south wall is “The Triumph of Music,” on the north wall is “The Sources of Music.” There are also statues by Aristide Maillol and Wilhelm Lehmbruck.

The crystal chandeliers in both the lobby and auditorium were conceived by Tad Leski of Harrison & Abramovitz and the design developed and fabricated by Hans Harald Rath of J. & L. Lobmeyr of Vienna.

Numerous portraits of great Met artists of the past are on display in Founders Hall, on the lower level of the lobby, and costume and memorabilia displays can be found in several locations in the lobby.
