Description

In the early 1950s, Nivola began to perform a series of cut-out sheet metal figures, the Ancestors, with a technique partly suggested by the sculpture of his friend Alexander Calder. The first known example, the great female form shown here, is made in Sardinia during a journey in 1952. Subsequently the artist returns several times to the theme, realizing among other things in 1957-58 a group of figures as decoration of a department store, Carr's Department Store in West Orange, New Jersey. Placed on the facade of the building, the plates are associated by Nivola to the clangor and animation of commerce and modern life.
