Man with Briefcase
Cor-Ten steel

Jonathan Borofsky
born Boston, MA 1942

Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Thelma and Melvin Lenkin and Julie Walters and Sam Rose in honor of Elizabeth Broun, Director from 1989 to 2016, 2016.48

New Acquisition

Jonathan Borofsky's monumental silhouette of a man carrying a briefcase portrays an urban Everyman. The artist was inspired in 1979 by a newspaper advertisement for men's suits and subsequently made this archetypal office worker a recurring theme in his work. The number on the figure's leg, "3277542," reflects the artist's habit of "signing" his pieces with a number from a continuous sequence.
