Gold, Betty (American, California, born 1935), Mask of Silver II, 1979, aluminum sheet collage mounted on paper, 31.5 x 23 inches, signed dated and titled lower left, framed measuring 36 x 27 inches, Provenance: Sidney Feldman; The Estate of Earl Latterman (partner of Sidney Feldman at Tygart Steel); Sidney Feldman was a Carnegie Museum of Art board member and owner of Tygart Steel. Based in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, Tygart Steel also had locations in Donora, Pennsylvania and the state of California, and was known for working with artists to develop large-scale metal sculpture for outdoor spaces. Feldman was an art collector and patron in his own right and sought out artists to make new monumental works of public sculpture in collaboration with Tygart Steel. The company donated materials and provided critical services such as fabrication, transportation, and installation at no cost to artists, removing financial and logistical barriers to creating these works at scale. At Feldman's direction, the company worked with Gold, Lila Katzen, Charles Ginnever, and Fletcher Benton to fabricate and install their sculptures at Hartwood. These four works were produced by Clifford Lacey in a welding and fabrication shop in Donora, Pennsylvania. Although it is unclear whether Lacey was a direct was a direct employee or outside contractor for Tygart Steel, the company engaged his fabrication services and connected him to the artists. Betty Gold collaborated Tygart Steel to produce multiple artworks for different sites around the United States. This aluminum collage was produced during the time Gold actively collaborated with Tygart.
