Arnaldo Pomodoro Italian, b. 1926


Arnaldo Pomodoro, an artist of international acclaim, is widely regarded as Italy’s greatest post-war avant-garde sculptor.  In creating his iconic reliefs Pomodoro was heavily influenced by Constantin Brancusi, the“patriarch of modern sculpture”, adapting his clean, smooth sculptures and "reverting them" to a previous, almost “archaic state”.


Pomodoro is a globally recognized sculptor with important solo exhibitions in New York, Japan, France, Brazil, Germany, among others.  He has won such prestigious awards as the Carnegie Institute International prize in 1967 and the Henry Moore Grand Prize in Japan in 1981.  Along with being one of the twentieth century’s most important sculptors, Pomodoro is also renowned for his stage designs, teaching in numerous universities and being the founder of the Continuità Group in Italy in 1961-62.
