Description A 4-panel aluminum-leafed folding floor screen from the 1980s possibly Italian or French.

Each unique panel is constructed of six cutout sheets of wood, laminated and sculpted into arabesque curls.

The panels are connected by 360 degree hinges which allow for different configurations.

Each panels’s outer frame is aluminum leafed by hand. The 12 individual colored cutouts are individual compositions created from the following colors:
oyster white, mustard yellow, periwinkle blue, salamander orange, magenta pink, madder red, fern green and sienna brown.

The twelve select combinations of two or three colors are applied to the recessed shapes on both the front and back thus creating a free standing floor sculpture.

This is a production piece.

The coloring reminds me of Auguste Herbin, co-founder of the 1930s Parisian art group Abstraction-Creation and later in 1946 the Salon Des Realites Nouvelles.

The outer edges are crackle painted.

The screen is in excellent condition.
