About

1974 Compressed wirehoods and champagne corks. Edition of 50 (each different), signed by the artist. Bob Valois Editions. Work registered in the Denyse Durand-Ruel Archives under the number 5540. César, French sculpture and member of the "Nouveau Réalisme" movement, is best known for his use of compressed cars and recycled metals. Although his work shows similarities to artists like Andy Warhol in his appropriation of commercial products, César is more interested in the formal traditions of modern sculpture, as for example through the work of Alberto Giacometti. Born César Baldaccini on January 11, 1921 in Marseille to Italian parents, he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, graduating in 1948. “Despite my classic academic education, I entered the industrial world and learned to approach found materials according to their own language." The artist is at the origin of the creation of the bronze trophies awarded every year during the César ceremony (French equivalent of the Oscars). He represented France at the Venice Biennale in 1995 and today his works can be found in the collections of major institutions around the world such as the Center Pompidou in Paris, the Tate Gallery in London, the MoMA in New York. César died on December 6, 1998 in Paris.
