Description

Fausto Melotti (Italian, 1901-1986).

This piece is final sale and not eligible for return.


Fausto Melotti’s Senza titolo is a synthesis of the artist’s work in metal sculpture, painting, plaster and ceramics. Blending abstraction and figuration, with suggestions of simplified standing figures, this work includes attenuated brass forms that tie it directly to Melotti’s sculptures of the period.
