Description

Brutalist wall sculptures such as this impressive offering from Curtis Jere were in vogue in America during the mid 20th century. After being used on the sets of many prominent TV series, such as the hit American show 'Madmen', and showcased in some of the coolest mid-century Palm Springs homes, they are once again highly coveted.

This rare offering is one of the larger pieces created by Curtis Jere. It features an Italian Village scene elegantly rendered in raw, torch cut steel and brass. The scale is impressive and perfectly matched by the detail created in the work. We love the small tables with sun umbrella and the treatment of the trees and roofs. The artwork has been designed to age and patina over time which really sets the scene.

Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels created the nom de plume Curtis Jere to market their contemporary sculptures. Their studio 'Artisan House' designed and made a large variety of metal art which retailed through high end studios like Raymor in New York City.
