Robert Watts | Cabbage

Robert Watts 
Verona, Italy: Edizioni Francesco Conz, 1984
22 × 16 × 16 cm.
Edition of 100 stamped and numbered copies

A chrome-plated bronze casting of a cabbage, mounted on a mahogany wooden base and housed in a cardboard box. The edition is based on Chrome Cabbage, a work from 1964 (see below) which I believe is unique. It is housed in the MoMA collection. 

Cabbage is still available from the publisher, here, for € 1.500.00.

Watts, who died of lung cancer at the age of 65 in 1988, was born on this day in 1923.
