FRANÇOIS STAHLY
1911-2006

Colonne d’eau, 1959 – 1960

Aluminium with patina from natural corrosion, cast at time of creation, one-off piece, bears the artist’s signature, no founder’s mark, 209 x 33 x 33 cm, height without 202 cm wooden base used at the time of first mounting.

The 5/8 exemplar extends the bronze casting series of four exemplars begun when the sculptor was still alive; it is in production by the Fonderie Susse, with the approval of the Comité François Stahly. It is in fact the extremity of the preceding Chaîne d’eau, turned upwards.
