Mitoraj in The Hague (1/2)


Igor Mitoraj is a very famous contemporary Polish artist who exposes at least two magnificent sculptures in The Hague, the one pictured on this shot and the Light of the Moon that I'll show tomorrow. His sculptural style is desbribed in Wikipedia as being "heavily rooted in the classical tradition with its focus on the well modelled torso. However, Mitoraj introduces a post-modern twist with ostentatiously truncated limbs emphasising the damage sustained by most genuine classical sculptures".

Should you want to see more of his works, just have a look on Flickr where today there are more than 1200 photos!!!
