Arman Armand Pierre Fernandez (1928-2005), a member of the New Realism group, was a French-born 20th century American artist whose work ranges from drawings, print, public sculpture, and “accumulation” of found objects. His work is strongly influenced by Dada and Pop Art. Born in Nice, he studied at the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs and later went to Paris to study art history at the Ecole du Louvre. His early work focused on abstract paintings. In his Accumulations series, he compiled similar or identical objects, sometimes cast in polyester or enclosed in Plexiglas. His work is in collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
