Alexander Calder: Picture " The Letter Z", unframed

Alexander Calder created this impressive work for the "Club of 5000" initiated cycle "L'alfabeto di Bolaffi Arte". He draws with powerful line the distinctive contours of a lying,sleeping man whose outstretched head of illustrative flows. Calder sees the situation as a visible sign of life and freedom, because without the air you breathe there is no life, and no freedom without the freedom to develop one's own personality is a dignified life impossible.

Photolithography in three colours, signed by the artist, numbered in back. Limited edition of 5.000 examples. Sheet size about 23.5 x 29.8 cm.
