Italian artist Pietro Consagra (1920–2005) favored structured abstraction, and though he is known primarily as a sculptor, he also worked in painting, drawing, writing, jewelry, furniture-making and urban architecture. Accompanying an exhibition in Switzerland, this publication reviews the artist’s vast oeuvre from the 1950s to ’70s.

This monograph on Italian sculptor Pietro Consagra (1947–2005) focuses on early abstract works from 1947 to his “frontal music” projects in 1982. A founding member of Forma 1 group, Consagra challenged sculptural conventions by creating slender, almost two-dimensional “frontal sculptures” in bronze, iron, wood, steel and marble.
