Bronze Sculpture by Alicia PenalbaRegular price $10,000.00
Penalba was born in San Pedro, Buenos Aires Province in 1913. She originally sought a career in drawing and painting. However, in 1950, during her stay in Paris, she decided to commit entirely to sculpture. Penalba specialized in vertical organic forms and drew inspiration from fellow sculptors Etienne Martin and Etienne Hajdu. Her works are part of the non-figurative abstract art movement. By the 1960s, her artwork shifted slightly toward sculptures of a more horizontal orientation. While she created many sculptures of all shapes and sizes, she is best known for her monumental pieces that can be found all over the world. She sculpted this piece in the mid century in Paris and it was cast in Italy. The piece has the foundry stamp, series 4/6.
