Masaru Takiguchi (Japanese, b. 1941)

Lot 0888 Details

Description
Masaru Takiguchi (Japanese, b. 1941), "Seishum", 1970, polished bronze, incised signature, numbered "4/9" and date stamped at back edge, presented on a round marble plinth, overall h. 20-7/8", w. 9-1/2", d. 5". Provenance: Kiko Galleries, Houston, Texas; Estate of Carolyn G. Fay, Houston, Texas. Masaru Takiguchi received an MA in sculpture from Kyoto City College of Fine Arts, Japan, before travelling to the United States in 1968 to accept a position as guest lecturer at the High Museum School of Art, Atlanta, Georgia. He eventually taught for several years at the University of Houston, Texas. With his undulating metal and stone sculptures which twist, turn and curve, Takiguchi explores mass and movement, and reveals his delight and fascination with the organic form. His works are in numerous private and public collections.
Condition
In generally good condition. Overall scattered areas of oxidation and darkening. A few small nicks along edges of bronze. Some abrading to edges of marble base along with slight losses where it is joined to sculpture.
