This wonderful mid century modern skyscraper sculpture is from the 1970s and stands 75″ tall. Its made of wood with some geometric sections painted with a faux finished bold orange with black edges. The other sections are painted all black with acid etched brass plates on each side. Theese brass panels, six in total, have an abstract brutalist look and finish, similar to some furniture made during this era. The black edges contrast nicely with the orange and brass, making the tall sculpture very striking and adding to its distinct appearance. The black wood base is original and part of the actual sculpture.
This mid century modern skyscraper sculpture appears to be a one-of-a-kind artwork. There is no artist signature or marks that we can find, so it appears to be unsigned.
