Footnotes

  • This work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.

    Literature:
    Philolaos, Sculptures, Itanos Publications, p. 106, fig. 5 (illustrated).
    Les Thessaliens du Monde - A l'Atelier de Philolaos, Larissa 2008, p. 24 (shown in a photograph of the artist's studio).

    A work of grace and minimalist rigour, Portrait de jeune fille manages to convey the purity of line and clarity of form so eminently expressed in the early Cycladic figurines, capturing the brilliance of its distant antecedents in steel, a material far less translucent than marble. A restless and inquisitive mind, Philolaos enjoys a sterling reputation in both France and Greece as one of the first artists of his generation to infuse the forces of renewal in postwar European sculpture with a fresh and vital impetus.
