These multiple are also five images with examples of how this multiple can be displayed, but there are still plenty of other possibilities, see the pictures.

Weight approx. 1200 g.

Background information:
Cor van Dijk's steel sculptures (1952) are sleek and geometrically shaped. The material steel is inseparably linked to the realisation of the work from the design stage.

The sculptures are made up of loose, precisely fitting parts made of solid steel. These parts are cut from sheets of steel, which vary in thickness depending on the concept to be realized. By using the thickness of the steel plate as a measure in the sculpture, the mill scale, already present on the steel, remains intact.

In 2004, Van Dijk's work was crowned with the Jacob Hartog prize, according to the jury because his images were touching, tender and poetic. He lives and works in Acquoy. Source: Wikipedia.

Some scratches and oxidation on the steel, but can be overlooked when looking at the whole. Take a good look at the photos for an accurate impression of the lot on offer.


Will be well packaged and sent by registered mail via PostNL Parcel Service, inside and outside the Netherlands. Please visit our Catawiki page at catawiki.grooveydesign.nl to view more vintage-design lots.
