Marta Pan

Date of birth : 1923

Date of death : 2008

Country : France

Sculptor.

After moving to Paris in 1947, Pan met Brancusi and Léger, and later worked with Le Corbusier. Up until 1960, her sculptures are made of two pieces of wood whose mobility allows their shape to be altered. The same mobility and movement can also be found in her floating polyester sculptures and in her concrete Puzzles.

Architecture is another source that inspired her to make monumental works that are a continuation and extension of urbanism. Her recent work brings together sensuality, purism and evidence of form in a kind of classicism of abstract sculpture.
