Bordallo Pinheiro

Bordallo Pinheiro

Centrepiece Surf

SKU: 65006877
$2,495.00

Surf brings together, in an exclusive piece, the work of two of the most important and influential Portuguese artists: Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro (1846-1905) and the contemporary artist Joana Vasconcelos (b. 1971). 


An exceptional composition interpreted by small green frogs and natural-coloured sardines are what shape Surf, a centrepiece designed by Joana Vasconcelos from original moulds designed by Bordallo Pinheiro. The piece combines and respects 
spontaneity and delicateness, typical of the work of Bordallo Pinheiro, and plays with figuration/abstraction, micro/macro, achieved by the repetition of the forms.

As the title of the piece suggests, the structure of the composition is formed by a group of frogs surfing on top of sardines, in an assertive allusion to the graceful humour of Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro, a common feature in the work of the two artists. 


Special Edition limited to 3000 examples.
