Alfred Basbous: Modernist Pioneer

a4012ffa0cf38069d4126fd87d20b2a46dc5150e

Lebanese sculptor Alfred Basbous will be the subject of a mini-retrospective. Focused on the aesthetic principles of shape, movement, line and material, his sculptures display a deeply ingrained sincerity and a search for the essence of beauty. Working in the tradition of sculptors such as Auguste Rodin, Jean Arp and Henry Moore, Alfred Basbous explored the potential of noble materials such as bronze, wood and marble to express the sensuality and purity of the human form. This aversion towards frivolous and meaningless embellishments echoed his own philosophy of simplicity.
