In good original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. Max Sauze, sculptor, designer, visual artist, was born in 1933 in Algeria. He first attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Alger between 1953 and 1956, and then went on to study at the famous ECOLE CAMONDO in PARIS (1956-59). During the early 1970s, Max Sauze quickly established his own immediately recognizable style through the construction of bent aluminium strips on steel wire structures. Max Sauze, works on the multiplication of form. From a base which is replicated out in all dimensions, the structure takes form referencing the process of life. Through simplification, removal of the superfluous, his work is a return to what is deemed essential. He is today recognized internationally for his work.
