This iconic sculpture is the epitome of Brutalism! It has a structural rawness and uses both texture and space to convey a unique modern art message to the world! This type of art was so marveled at, that Science Fiction artists who did covers for paperbacks, would employ this "tower of metal" in countless sci-fi covers depicting a future or alien world! This is the sort of art that found its way into the best collections of the period. Philip Johnson, John Entenza and other mid century art icons had similar works in their extensive modern art collections. The direct metal sculptors like Bernard Rosenthal, Rod Wood, Harry Bertoia and Alberto Giacometti worked metal with this new modern creativity! During the 1950s sculpture actually supplanted paintings in many of the world's finest galleries! With this metal sculpture iron nails have been fused with alloys to create a gigantic structure! It rests on four elongated pieces and appears to defy gravity and float in space! This work is a symphony of texture and perspectives! Layers of horizontal and vertical patterns of metal give the eye an endless variety of visual depths and make this piece a true vision! This marvelous metal work is in fine vintage condition!
