Mimmo Paladino, 1948- , Italian
Paladino belonged to the 'Transavanguardia' (beyond the avant-garde) during the 1970's. This group of Italian artists worked in the Neo-Expressionist style, returning to traditional and recognizable subjects in sculpture and painting. History, mythology and the human form were central concerns. Sud II is a monumental bronze casting that captures the essence of these ancient and classical mythic themes.
Gift of Alfred Harrison and Ingrid Lenz Harrison, 2017.
Located in the Harrison Sculpture Garden.
