Detailed description

Sculpture "Unicorn" (2015), bronze version partially gold-plated

A motif that could not be more typical of Fantastic Realism, and at the same time a reverence to the history of art: Askew's unicorn is unmistakably similar in shape and pose to the famous horse depictions of Leonardo da Vinci and Theodore Gericault.

Edition in bronze, cast using the Lost-Wax-Process. Patinated and polished by hand. Partially gold-plated with 24-carat. Numbered, signed and hallmarked with the foundry stamp. Size 36 x 40 x 12 cm (h/w/d). Limited ars mundi Exclusive Edition of 49 copies.

About Joseph F. Askew

The American painter and sculptor Joseph F. Askew set off for Vienna in the mid-1970s as a 25-year-old student at the Art Students League in New York to learn the painting techniques of the old masters from the grandmaster of Fantastic Realism Ernst Fuchs. Askew and Fuchs remained friends, even became long-time neighbours, because Askew lived in Vienna for more than a decade and later moved - as did Fuchs - to the small artists' village of Castillon on the Riviera, where he still lives and works today.
