A unique abstract modern bronze sculpture by Louise Nevelson. On a wooden base with the name plaque. Original gallery and auction stickers on bottom of the base. The sculpture has a unique textural effect with small markings and a patina that is consistent with age. By the late 1940s and early 1950s, Nevelson had traveled to Guatemala and Mexico to view Pre-Colombian art and there is a tribal or animal-like quality to this sculpture which could have been inspired by her travels. The composition has a transcendent quality which provides a visual interplay of object and space. An extraordinary sculpture for collectors of modern art. From a private collection. Dimensions: 14”h x 6.75”w x 6.75”d. In very good condition.
