Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Cesar, the common name for Cesar Baldaccini, is a French sculptor active from the 1950's until his death in 1998. He became involved with the Nouveau Realisme movement because he used 'found' objects to compose art. He later joined the Nouveaux Réalistes (New Realists) with artists Arman, Klein, and others; urban life was their motivation. He studied in Marseille and Paris at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. His first one-man exhibition was in Paris in 1954.
 
« I’m not an intellectual, I like to touch. It’s my hands that make my head work. »
Cesar  Baldaccini
Examples of his sculptures can be seen in museums around Paris and Marseille. He began his career by welding together pieces of 'found' scrap metal and made his early reputation with soldered and solid-welded sculptures of insects, fish, and animals. He was known for very large sculptures, such as a 40 foot high sculpture of his thumb and a 520 ton sculpture of several cars welded together.
 
« I entered the factory world and learned to approach recuperated materials in their own language. »
Cesar  Baldaccini

His welded metal work is part of his 'compressions' phase. Contrasting his metal work, Cesar moved into his 'expansions' phase by using plastic. In 1965, he started with plastic molds of human imprints and created large, shiny images Read More

What is Postmodernism?

Postmodernism is artwork which sought to make visual statements against authority, to remove boundaries between art and everyday life, and to bridge gaps between the cultural elite and popular masses. Art in this movement embraces many earlier conventions and styles in eclectic mixtures.
