About

This is the maquette for the larger work displayed at Shadyside Hospital in Pittsburg. Signed on the left leg. Victor Salmones (1937-1989) was the most widely known sculptor living and working in Mexico during his lifetime. His sculptures won him universal acclaim and are held in the collections of museums, corporations, cities, universities and private collectors in some 30 countries. During his career, he was highly sought after and increasingly involved in the execution of commissions for major public works around the world. Salmones developed his love and talent for creating sculpture by working with clay in high school. He attended the Instituto de Bellas Artes where he was an apprentice to the Bauhaus master, Hoffman. He was trained to use the exacting, age-old lost wax method of casting and worked principally in bronze. His work explores styles that are both abstract and figurative and the grace and spirit inherent in his work endows his bronzes with a transcendent vitality. The international acceptance of Salmones’ sculpture attests not only to his artistic mastery of the medium, but to the universal appeal of the themes that inspire his work: love, compassion and humanity.
