Tony Rosenthal Untitled 1965

$ 24,975
  • Description
    This stunning Mid Century Modern welded bronze sculpture was realized by the esteemed 20th Century artist Tony Rosenthal circa 1965. Signed and dated by the artist (and with an included certificate of authenticity) this graphic and sophisticated sculpture offers a collection of organic rectilinear forms fused together to create a silhouette full of verve and dynamism. Created entirely in meticulously hand welded bronze, the work stands on a circular base with a volumetric rectangular stem that attaches to a rectangular neck of the same form but lesser diameter. A grouping of block- like objects from the rectilinear stem creating a form that appears bounding in mid air. With its energetic, abstract form and beautiful craftsmanship, this piece is sure to delight discerning collectors of modern art, as well as those with a penchant for exquisite objects. This piece represents an especially compelling example of Rosenthal's practice, showcasing his gift for idiosyncratic form and movement that make him such a celebrated 20th century artist. The piece is signed "Rosenthal 65".

    Tony Rosenthal received his first public art commission for the Elgin Watch Company building at the 1939 World's Fair. His public art works include five in Manhattan, and numerous others in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Florida, Michigan and Connecticut. Rosenthal was perhaps best known for his monumental outdoor abstract sculptures including "Alamo" the famous cube sculpture at Astor Place in New York City (1967), as well as one at the Parker Center, Los Angeles, 1955.

    Rosenthal's works are owned by museums around the world, including: Chrysler Museum: "Big Six", 1977; Connecticut College: "Memorial Cube", 1972; Israel Museum: "Oracle", 1960; Long House Reserve: "Mandala", 1994-95, "Rites of Spring", 1997; Los Angeles County Museum of Art: "Things Invisible to See", 1960, "Harp Player", 1950; Milwaukee Art Museum: "Big Six", 1977, "Maquette for Hammarskjold", 1977; and the National Gallery of Art: "Magpole", 1965.
