Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Contemporary artist Val Bertoia's "Double Vertical Spray Sculpture". This Kinetic sculpture was made by cutting one grouping of stainless-steel wires that were made by Harry Bertoia (circa 1950s-1960s) to make two vertical sprays. The wires were then silvered into a brass cylinder mounted on a square base. Inscribed B-1824 on the side of base and is sold with a Title of Authentication from Bertoia Studio.

Val Bertoia, son of artist Harry Bertoia, was born in Santa Monica, California in 1949. In 1950, Harry moved his family to Pennsylvania, to establish a studio and to work with Hans and Florence Knoll. Val grew up there and went on to study Mechanical Engineering at Indiana Institute of Technology in Ft. Wayne, Indiana in the 1960s. In the 1970s, Val worked with his father, Harry, in making and installing large-scale sculptures for architects worldwide. And by 1979, Val continued the sculpture-business of his father's legacy.

Provenance: Acquired directly from Val Bertoia.
