César

1921-1998

César Baldaccini (born 1921, Marseille 1921 – died 1998, Paris) was, together with Arman, the most important representative of "Nouveau Réalisme". Starting in 1949, César welded metal sculptures from prefabricated components and exhibited "compressions" (compacted automobiles) from 1960. This was followed in 1966 with casts of body shapes and his "expansions" which were made of expandable polyurethane foam.
