About

Impressive abstract metal sculpture of anodized brass by artist Mathias Goeritz (1915-1990), circa 1970s.

Mathias Goeritz studied Philosophy and Art History before immigrating to Mexico in 1949. He was influenced by the modernist movements of the time and artists such as Yves Klein and Lucio Fontana. Goeritz' work inspired his peers leading to the formation of the artist group Los Hartos. Goeritz and architect Luis Barragan developed one of the most important architectural projects in Mexico, El Pedregal.
