Javier Marin Bronze Sculpture Listed Mexican Artist (b.1962) Large Scale 28lbs:
Offered for your consideration today is this handsome, large bronze sculpture by the renowned Latin American artist, Javier Marin (b. 1962). As you can see, it is a female head, possibly of Medussa, with a light verdigris-type patina. Marin is a Listed Artist, who was born in and works in Mexico; his record high sale price was $93,750 by Sotheby's in May 2015 (for a large scale piece). This particular bronze is a fine casting measuring approximately 17" tall by 12" wide and weighing in at approximately 28 pounds. While I do have the original stand for this piece, it is not currently attached to the bronze (it needs to be soldered together and re-attached); nevertheless, I have attached a photo of the stand for your review. It is up to you whether you wish to have it reattached or to display the head on a shelf or mantle, or perhaps in your garden. I believe this bronze dates to the mid-1990's. As you can see from the detailed photos, the bronze is inscribed/signed Javier Marin. As you can also see, the bronze has a warm greenish yellow verdigris finish. If you are a collector of Latin American or Mexican art in general, or the art of Javier Marin in particular, this piece will afford you a wonderful opportunity to acquire one of his more substantial and impressive works without having to pay a buyer's premium as you would at a traditional sale house. Thanks for looking.
