Notes:
Given by the artist in June 2000. The piece entered physically the Academy on september 2000. This sculpture is the first of an edition of fifteen (1/15). It is made in an oxidized iron sheet of 6 mm and is a small-scale reproduction of the monument by Marcel Martí made in Monells (at the Empordà) as a tribute to the painter August Puig (1929-1999) who had recently died. Marcel Martí is one of the most notable artists of the organic style of sculpture. Either in marble, bronze or iron sheet his forms are always finely cut out, fragmented and full of rhythm.
