This work dates to the French artist’s 1950 visit to New York. Black slashes describe the steel skeletons of the Rockefeller Center skyscrapers, while the splayed perspective heightens their towering effect.
OM6 refers to “original multiples,” a contradictory term Fautrier coined to challenge ideas of originality and authenticity.
