Figure X A, 1975

Henri Presset (1928–2013)

About the artwork

Abstract as they are, Henri Presset‘s works are consistently based on the human body. Here, three adjacent figures are evident, even though their forms consist of clear geometric structures. The use of COR-TEN steel (often used in the construction industry as a weatherproof component) combined with a voluminous design and a soaring height lend the work a distinctive presence.
