Sculptures by Marisol Escobar seen at MoMA (Museum Of Modern Art), New York - The Family

The Family

Marisol Escobar's “The Family” (1962) is a sculpture made from painted wood, sneakers, door knob and plate. Found at MoMA (Museum Of Modern Art), the works, which combined painted and minimally carved wooden figures with found objects like shoes and doors, are funny but incisive, simple-looking but expertly made. This American sculptor of boxlike figurative works takes pride in creating pieces that depict variations of the family unit.
