Some of My Favorite Sculptures

I wanted to share some of my favorite sculptures. They are of differing styles, some ancient, some classical, some modern.

    

Left is Michelangelo’s “Awakening Slave,” and above, his representation of “Night,” from the Medici Chapel.

Below, are two from Henry Moore.

 

      

Aristide Maillol, below left, Auguste Rodin, below right.

       

The famous ancient Greek, “Venus de Milo, below left, paired with another Maillol.

     

      

Above left is an Egyptian piece, right a Cycladic one. Below are Giacometti and Brancusi.

      

Below are two pieces by Marino Marini.

  •        
Below left is an African head, right, one from Easter island.
      
      
Above left is a Cycladic head, right, one by Amadeo Modigliani. Below is another by Constantin Brancusi, and one by Lorrie Goulet, who taught me how to carve in stone.
      
Below left, Henri Matisse, and right, is another Henry Moore.
    
  
Above left is Henry Moore, right, Isamu Noguchi. Below, one by Nigel Hall, and one by Richard Serra.
  
Below, a monumental Picasso.
Having shown some of my  favorite works, it is easy , I think, to see how they influenced me in these sculptures of my own, below.

    Many thanks for your Husk of Meaning. Marino Marini – Yes, along with the Pisano father and son sculptures in Pisa, wonderfully direct. Milan too has some fine Marini work. Off to Florence and Pisa again soon to visit some favourite madonnas. David, are you aware of the Potremoli prehistoric stele in Liguria ? You have prompted me to look up some etruscan sites while in Italy.

      No Victoria, I wasn’t aware of those. I hope to be back in Italy next year and will try to check it out. I like Pisano very much, as well.
