Largo-May, 1950-1957

Russian-born American sculptor Saul Baizerman is best known for his labor-intensive, hand-hammering technique on the copper medium to create graceful relief sculptures, such as the beautiful female figure here named Largo-May. For each of these sculptors, Baizerman would arduously hammer a cold copper sheet on both sides, allowing a cocoon-like image to appear in relief. Through this practice, Baizerman aligns himself with the strenuous exertions of the manual laborers, expressing his solidarity with the working class.
