Original Vintage Livingston Welch Metal & Lead Sculpture on Marble -"The Dancer". Base: 4.5" x 5" x 1.5. For your consideration is a rare piece of artwork. This is an original Livingston Welch metal sculpture entitled "The Dancer".Welch preferred to work in Brass and Lead. He used lead to mold his basic figure and then covered it with the metal. This particular sculpture appears to be made of some kind of tin - different from the other sculpture I have listed. But, like my other listed sculpture, it has been embellished with some light brushes of bronze or copper paint. Set on a thick marble base this statue stands 17 tall from floor to peak. Welch's brutalist abstract sculpting style allows the mind to be creative and see what it wants to see. This piece is truly captivating and seems change right before your eyes depending on which angle you're looking from. This piece is not signed, just as most of his work is unsigned, and it has no COA. I'm not sure how the auctioneer I bought it from identified the title as "The Dancer" unless he had access to a catalog of Welch's work. He currently has art showcased at the Notre Dame University Museum, Casanova College, and Hunter College. While he was alive he exhibited his work at. This sculpture came from an estate with a large collection of Livingston Welch sculptures and paintings.
I was fortunate enough to procure a few of each. I will be listing more Livingston Welch paintings and sculptures in the coming weeks.
