Rearing Horse

Grande Cavallo Impennato” (Rearing Horse) by Aligi Sassu, Via Brera, Milano,
“Grande Cavallo Impennato” (Rearing Horse) by Aligi Sassu, 1969
Via Brera
Milano, November 2016

“Located in Via Brera in the very center of Milan, in front of the Accademia di Brera and its Pinacoteca as well as the house where the artist lived for a long time, this large work manifests the component of myth which Sassu manages to bestow on sculpture when he moves out of the field of ceramics or small sculptures, which are characterized by more refined, precious effects and a lyrical tone. Two of the five versions of this work are in the garden of the Confcommercio building in Milan and in Piazza della Repubblica in the Republic of San Marino.” (Large Rearing Horse, Aligi Sassu)
