Maserati 4CL by E. Mardini, 1940s
Price Code: SOLD
‘Maserati en Course’
A silvered bronze sculpture of a Maserati 4CL at speed, the automobile is shown on a steep banking suggested by a curving, pitched sôcle, with a Modernist impressed cross-hatched surface adding to the illusion of movement.
The bronze is set on a deep angular marble base, and is signed in the foreground of the cast, E.MARDINI. Little is known of the sculptor, Italian by birth but who mostly worked in France, but Mardini was known to have created several motorcycle bronzes in the 1930s, each with speed as its focus. French, circa late 1940s.
Length: 16 inches (41 cm)
