GlennBench 60" L, Figure 54" H x 38" D
Unveiled following the Glenn Gould Gathering, an international symposium of Gould's devotees, musicologists and scholars. Commissioned by Glenn Gould Foundation. Based on an original photo by Don Hunstein CBC, Front Street, Toronto.
Gould was a master at crafting his public image so this portrait replicates a small photo taken by Columbia Records photographer, Don Hunstein. Seated on a plank park bench, Glenn presents himself in an enigmatic pose. Outside his namesake studio he engages Torontonians and throngs of sports fans from the Rogers Centre across the street.
