Description

This is a modern brutalist metal art sculpture by Italian artist Marcello Fantoni. It is in the abstract form of a sailboat. The base, or boat body, is cut from a train rail and the sails are cut from five individual sheets of a heavy metal and welded on. The entire piece has a marvelous patina- the rail oxidized as would be expected and the sails are covered with verdigris and reddish accents. It is signed on the base "Fantoni, Firenze, Italy, 1959". Condition is perfect.
