Abstract bas-relief, 1950s

Aluminium with patina by natural corrosion, cast at the time of creation, one-off piece, bears the FS monogram and the stamp of the artist and art publisher Carrare Editore Erminio Cidonio, 100 x 239 x 10 cm.

Research into animated patterns sculpted in relief gave rise to a great many works in the 1950s and 60s.
Among the best known are the two enormous Vitraux-Reliefs in stone agglomerated with blocks of crystal for the church of Saint-Rémy at Baccarat (1952-56), and the transparent Mur-Relief and bas-reliefs for the Meudon studio.
The pattern of this work figures in several works and brings to mind the wavy traces made on sand when the tide goes out.
