Original Vintage Livingston Welch Metal & Lead Sculpture - "The Boxer". Base: 5.5" x 6" x 1.
For your consideration is a rare piece of artwork. This is an original Livingston Welch metal sculpture. It is untitled but has been referred to as "The Boxer". Welch preferred to work in Brass and Lead.
He used lead to mold his basic figure and then covered it with the metal. This sculpture appears to be some type of heavy metal but I'm not a metal expert so I can't tell you what metal it is. Like the other Welch sculpture I have listed, this one has some light brushes of bronze or copper paint to make it looks rusty and weathered.
Set on a thick pink-hued stone base (possibly granite) this statue stands 14 tall from floor to head. Welch's brutalist abstract sculpting style allows the mind to be creative and see what it wants to see. This piece is really quite cool and is fun to just sit and ponder.Like my other Welch sculpture, it is not signed, just as most of his work is unsigned, and it has no COA. I'm not sure why the auctioneer I bought it from suggested the title of this piece to possibly be "The Boxer", unless he had access to a catalog of Welch's sculptures that I do not have. 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.
