All reasoable offers will be considered
La Paloma – Sculpture by Alvar in polished bronze with a two tier base in natural marble (as shown in the picture) or polished black granite. The size including the base is 10″ wide X 10″ high X 7″ deep. This beautiful sculpture is a signed and numbered limited edition.
The piece is in a flawless state of preservation (like new). As the exclusive international publisher and distributor, purchaser will be provided with an original Certificate of Authenticity. The artist’s signature is cast in the sculpture and it is numbered by hand stamping.
Due to increased costs in producing these sculpture, it is doubtful more will be cast and, in such case, only those currently in the market will be available other than secondary market sellers.
ABOUT THE ARTIST – (click on picture to enlarge it)
The rights to the image were originally purchased from the artist by a group of about a dozen New York area dealers who purchased sculpture rights from many famous artists. I subsequently purchased them in 1989.
This allows me to complete the editions as set forth in the original tirage which includes American and International editions of 175, 200 and 225 in three different patina finishes. These editions go back prior to 1980 and are approximately three-fourths sold out.
I have gone to producing polished bronze pieces upon which I substitute edition numbers for patina finished pieces, thereby not adding to the total edition quantity. This also provides security to prevent or track anyone who might try and make castings from one of these sculpture since I am the only one having records as to which numbers were created in polished bronze.
Each piece has the artist’s signature cast into the bronze and is hand stamped with the edition number. The numbers I am presently at are in the 180’s of 225.
These pieces are beautifully cast and finished and have a two tier natural marble or polished granite base. The retail price is $3,900.00 and, unlike most other things that prices have been raised, as costs increase, I have not raised the retail prices on this sculpture since purchasing the rights in 1989.
The exclusive rights and foundry molds are available for sale to continue publishing the edition of this sculpture.
Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.
