Girl with Guitar: resin figure by Joan Ripollés, unique and signed by the artist, big-sized and visually powerful. The figure shows surely the characteristic style of its creator, being a colorful and bright work of art seen from a cubist and avant-garde point of view. It is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity issued by Ripollés himself, which guarantees its authorship. It is made of resin and depicts a girl who holds a small guitar high. The figure has no concrete body, as it is composed of a big ovoid head with two long legs and two small arms. It is standing on one leg and a circular resin base. The other leg is bent as the figure is moving, maybe performing some kind of dance. The head is white and shows different profiles and expressions, depending of the point of view. They are all joyful and simple, with the great color array which we can see in many of the artists work. The legs are painted in vertical color stripes, while the arms and the guitar show bright and intense colors too. The foot which rests on the base bears the artists signature, Ripollés. For its magnificent execution and its unique character, this Girl with Guitar: resin figure by Joan Ripollés deserves to become part of a good collection of contemporary art. Dimensions: Width: 10 in / 25.5 cm. Height: 22 in / 56 cm.Juan Garcia Ripollés Biography Juan Garcia Ripollés, also known as Ripo or Beato Ripo, is a Spanish artist born in Alzira (Valencia) in 1932.
