Untitled Sculpture

Untitled, 1986

Fletcher Benton (1931- )

Painted Steel

City of Beverly Hills Donation by Dr. Bernard Salick

The ancestry of Fletcher Benton's abstract sculptures goes back to Russian Constructivism and the Machine Age by way of pure, hard, geometric form and the art of assemblage. Using this modernist vocabulary, Benton achieves a dynamic balance between opposing, gravity-defying shapes.

Fun Fact: Benton was a part of the Beatnik movement in San Francisco during the '50s and '60s working as a sign painter by day and an expressionist painter by night.
