Allen Jones: Sculpture "Free Spirit", bronze

Detailed description

Sculpture "Free Spirit", bronze

The first sculpture Allen Jones created in bronze is called Free Spirit. He has literally dematerialised bronze and processed it with a lightness that leaves us stunned. The artist succeeds in transferring lightness, light-heartedness, cockiness, and even irreverence towards all conventions onto the material. "Free Spirit" appeals to both the mind and the emotions and, at the same time, provides an extraordinary visual pleasure. With the loose wide-cut trousers, the swirling tie, a stylised profile and a hat - unresolved whether blown by the wind or balanced on the forehead - Free Spirit immediately takes us in.

Fine bronze sculpture, patinated and partially polished. Cast by hand using the Lost-Wax-Process. Limited edition of 125 copies, signed and numbered. Height of the sculpture 65 cm, weight approx. 4.5 kg

About Allen Jones

Allen Jones, born in Southampton, England, in 1937, is world-famous for his provocative art and the rebellion against British riches. In 1961, his participation in the exhibition "Young Contemporaries" helped English Pop Art to achieve a worldwide breakthrough.

The artist studied at the Royal College of Art. Throughout his artistic career, he has been a guest professor in Hamburg, Florida, Los Angeles and Berlin, and has had numerous exhibitions around the world.

Allen Jones' oeuvre includes spectacular paintings and graphic works, sculptures and photographs, heliogravures and digital prints. His visual language increased from gentle eroticism to a striking, challenging form of expression. For his bronze sculptures, he succeeded to transfer liveliness, light-heartedness, cockiness, even irreverence towards all conventions onto the material.

The value of Jones' works increases inexorably. They mark the worldwide breakthrough of a new concept of art that is oriented towards the real and the factual.
