Lot Essay

Carel Visser is considered to be the most important Dutch sculptor since World War II. The starting points of his work are natural motifs from visible reality, that he interprets in an abstract formal vocabulary. Until the end of the 1970s Carel Visser mainly worked in iron, creating works that are variations on a limited number of themes, like stacking, rotating, reflecting and linking of similar forms.
