Bronze Abstract Sculpture by Francois Kovacs, 1915-2005

About

A beautiful and powerful small bronze abstract sculpture on black marble base by Francois Kovacs. Numbered 15/35 and signed Francois Kovacs. Kovacs was a Belgian Sculptor and artist, originally from Hungary. Born into a poor family, he began sculpting from the age of 16. He quickly learnt the fundamental elements of sculpture, working with materials such as marble. He later followed drawing and painting lessons at the atelier Tibor Galle in Budapest. In conjunction with his artistic life, he studied medicine. In 1956 he left Hungary, for political reasons and moved to Belgium, his country of adoption. He continued to study at the Ecole des Arts in Bruxelles for three years and travelled regularly to Carrara Italy in order to work with marble. This is a very good example of his work.
