Marble Sculpture by Ilya Bolotowsky, “Column #22”

US$1,800Asking Price

About

A 1964 sculpture by Russian emmigré and abstract artist Ilya Bolotowsky. From his “Column” series, the piece has a square base of Carrera marble supporting an obelisk of the same material. Though better known as a painter, Bolotowsky’s sculpture engages with the same concerns, and its disciplined pursuit of fundamental forms is marked by the same primary techniques. Here, slightly raised stripes of red and gold paint in perfect rectangles populate the four faces of the marble pillar. Retains original label from Grace Borgenicht Gallery, identifying it as a 1964 work, “Column #22” and is signed by artist at base of column. Borgenicht ran a gallery in Midtown Manhattan that showcased contemporary American abstract artists. Condition: Good vintage condition; professionally cleaned. Marble was repaired prior to acquisition and there are an additional few small chips that have not been repaired. Dimensions: Base is a 4.25” square and the overall height of the piece is 21”.
