Marian Goodman Gallery, New York Acquired from the above by the present owner in July 1989
New York, Marian Goodman Gallery, A Sculpture Show, A Changing Exhibition, May - July 1988
"Fabro’s approach is not literary but philosophical and sensual. The essence of his work lies in the paradox of invoking the richness of myth and history with the everyday material...instead of precious stone or metal. This tension vies with the settled dignity of form. The aesthetic conundrum of beauty and value lies at the heart of our encounter..." Martin Holman, "Art is Always Art: The Accademia Opens its Doors to Modern Art," The Florentine, 7 June 2012
This work is in good and sound condition overall. There are scattered light surface scratches to the marble throughout. Under very close inspection, there are some scattered pinpoint and minor losses to the marble, the largest of which is a small chip to the back left upper corner of the top white marble and a small chip to the back right upper corner of the lower, darker marble, and there is a repaired crack to the bottom beige marble approximately 36-inches from the edge.
