Une Place au Soleil (1960)


The French sculptor Cesar Baldaccini, who was born in Marseilles, is known simply as 'Cesar.' He is, perhaps, best known for his 'compressions,' of the mid-1950s, made by densely compressing car bodies. In its use of scrap metals this piece is characteristic of Cesar's work of the early 1960s when he utilized materials which would formerly have been considered beneath the dignity of art.
