  • Notes: By default, an artist without formal training is categorized as an outsider, however the international recognition gained by Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) proved that she was more than qualified to join the fold of established artists. Phalle was a French American visual artist whose work crossed medium thresholds seamlessly, however she is primarily known as a sculptor of curvaceous female forms who embody a spirit of liberation and pure joy. Ever vibrant in color her exuberant giant sculptures are whimsical but rooted in deeper themes of politics, feminism, diversity, and inclusivity.
  • Condition: Overall good condition with scuffs and dust accumulation commensurate with age. Mounted in an acrylic case. Case with scattered scratches and scuffs, including a 15" scratch to front.
