Giacomo Manzù: "La Lettera T"

The representation of the letter T in the series "The letters of the alphabet" sparked Giacomo Manzu with the masterful representation of a dancer whom symbolizes the letters by her attitude. The sheet radiates a serene lightness in shape and colour. An original detail: Manzù wished that the spiral perforation that are separated from the sketchpad sheet is displayed as part of emotive effects with the picture .

Lithography ("a stampa") in five colours, handsigned by the artist, back numbered. Limited edition of 5.000 pieces. In solid wood framing with model bevel cut mat. Size incl. frame 40 x 50 cm.

Giacomo Manzu (1908-1991) was a leading sculptor in Italy and Marino Marini, with Alberto Giacometti and Henry Moore, Carlo Carra, the most important sculptors of the 20th century. His works influenced by contrast of youthful grace and religious, dogmatic rigor are masterful balancing acts between spirituality and reality, modernity and antiquity.

In 1938, Manzu exhibited in the 21st Venice Biennale. This was followed by exhibitions in Milan, Paris and New York. Under the title "The triumph of the Saints and the martyrs of the Church", Manzu designed the St. Peter’s door for Basilica in Rome. In 1955, he was awarded for designing the Salzburg Cathedral main door.

Giacomo Manzu pointed with his monumental sculptures new ways. Also in his drawing work he sought the capture of the main form without a naturalistic chattiness.
