Jonathan Borofsky
Man with a Briefcase, 1987-88
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.
