Folding Floor Screen Aluminum Leaf France or Italy, 1980s

$11,500

About

A 4-panel aluminum-leafed folding floor screen from the 1980s possibly Italian or French. Each panel is its own individual design constructed of six cut-out sheets of wood, laminated and sculpted into arabesque curls. The panels are connected by 360 degree hinges which allow for different configurations including a closed square. Each panels’s outer frame is aluminum leafed by hand and then painted in 12 individual colored cut-outs are each uniquely composed from the following colors: oyster white, mustard yellow, periwinkle blue, salamander orange, magenta pink, madder red, fern green and sienna brown. The twelve select combinations of two or three colors are applied to the recessed shapes on both the front and the back thus creating a free standing floor sculpture This is a complicated composition and a production piece. The color combinations remind me of Auguste Herbin, co-founder of the 1930s Parisian art group Abstraction-Creation and later in 1946 the Salon Des Realites Nouvelles. The outer edges are crackled with a slightly contrasting aluminum paint. The screen is in excellent condition.
