In Gilt Bronze, with shaped off-white linen shade

Belgium, circa 1960

Known for the abstract, stylized, and surrealist style of his lamps and sculptures, often depicting historical and mythological subjects, Agostini's lamp depicts a God or hero of classical legend in dramatic pose (under the weight of a lamp shade). Paying homage to Alberto and Diego Giacometti consolidated his position as a leading mid-century sculptor
  
From 1955 he started to sculpt with gypsum, the prototype of his most renowned creations (thereafter cast in bronze). Such sculptures and lamps were notable for merging classical motifs with cutting-edge mid-century design. Agostini's sculptures were characterized by their finely detailed surfaces and their sense of movement.
