An Extraordinary Gilt Multi Spray Sculpture by Harry Bertoia
Taking cues from a multitude of his sculpture techniques, this unique construction is a scintillating example of Bertoia´s work. 24 separate sprigs, each a group of thin gilt steel wires, are silvered to a bronze base. A rather unique work on a number of levels; the use of gilding is rare, and the distribution of the stalks is erratic in comparison to Bertoia´s work of this period when precision and order were key. The piece is in fantastic original condition, the base has a near mirror finish, while the wires are bright and unkinked.
