Abstract
 
Description
Archipenko was his most creative when living in France from 1908 to 1920, and in Paris he undertook a series of innovations that ultimately have established him as a pioneer of twentieth-century sculpture. He worked with untraditional materials such as glass, sheet metal, found objects, and mirror, as well as plaster and bronze. A contemporary witness to the cubist style of Picasso, Braque, and Gris, he took up many of their concerns, exploring concave and convex forms and experimenting with negative space.
This exhibition includes pieces from the Erich Goeritz Collection, from the artist's estate, and from other lenders. It is hoped that the exhibition and the catalogue will provide important opportunities for assessing Archipenko's crucial role in the development of twentieth-century art. - from Amzon
