This charming Victor Salmones sculpture we fondly titled as The Couple. The figurative bronze sculpture depicts a loving couple in a sitting embrace. Once again the artist captures a moment of kindness and grace of the human spirit, which is inherent to his work. The figures have a marvelous verdigris patinated finish that appears to be original to the over 50 year old artwork.
The Couple is an original Victor Salmones sculpture with the artist signature on leg of the female figure. It is marked number two of a low edition of only 10 pieces.
Victor Salmones was born in Mexico City and was one of the most widely known sculptors living and working in Mexico during his lifetime. His work explores styles that are both abstract and figurative. He has several large scale sculptures which can be found in commercial and private collections around the world.
We have another Victor Salmones sculpture currently in the gallery.
It will be listed online in the coming days.
