Amsterdam 1919 – 1989
Industrial designer, artist
Very nice large outdoor sculpture in brushed steel, made by Rudolf Wolf in 1972. Rudolf Wolf (1919-1989) did graphic school, and technical building school, after that he became an industrial designer, he worked a lot with Wim Rietveld and Friso Kramer during the 1950s and 1960s. Some famous chairs he designed for Elsrijk in the end of the 1950s, but the price winning Gamma Chair for van Gaasbeek & Tiel is probably his most famous design item. Rudolf Wolf called himself an architect, industrial designer and constructivist. After his industrial period he started as a free lance designer and from 1970 an artist. He made a lot of huge sculptures and paintings for big companies, schools and government buildings. Mostly in RVS, lucite, glass and aluminum, that’s often to see in his paintings, same colors and shapes were used.
This is for sure one of the most exeptionnal pieces he made, this sculpture was designed for outdoor usage and is made in very thick brushed steel. This sculpture was first exposed in an Amstelveens parc in 1972. After that it was sold to a private collector who had used this sculpture in their garden pond. The sculpture is still in VERY good condition though it has been used outdoors fort he last 44 years, its definately all weather proof. This sculpture is very heavy and can be fixed tot he floor if needed. Can also be used indoors ofcourse, its in clean condition and doesnt smell. Take this probably one chance to buy this monumental piece of art, definately our showpiece from the Rudolf Wolf collection.
All his works are sold with certificate of origin as not all of the works are signed. We also have a large photo archive where some works are on, or parts of it, or similar works.
