Sydney Alex Kumalo (1935 - 1988) South African, bronze sculpture. Features the abstract modernist form of a seated nude woman. Signed on base. Work measures 13" x 8" x 5 1/2". The importance of Kumalo in terms of the developing traditions of South African art can hardly be overstated. As the senior black educator at Polly Street and the Jubilee Centre, he shaped the sensibilities and style of a generation of artists. But more then this, in his own work, he succeeded in finding formulas and registers which, while they drew strongly on African sculptural tradition, nevertheless articulately spoke the languages of international modernism, and demanded to be taken seriously as such. Good overall condition with no damage to note. In house, Hill Auction Gallery, continental US shipping $125 plus insurance. H.A.G., will refer local third party shippers for International buyers upon request. Local pickup welcome.
