This limited edition large format giclée print of a pylon, one of two pylons created by Antonio Sartorio for an art center, is made from a photographic plate that appeared in “Exposition Internationale De 1937, Louis Hautecoeur, Sculpture Decorative”, a rare portfolio of plates documenting European Arts Decoratifs sculpture. The original photograph is believed to have been destroyed in WW II.

Antoine Sartorio was a French sculptor whose works appeared at the Exhibition des Arts Décoratifs of Paris in 1925, at the "Exposition Coloniale de Vincennes" in 1931 and the "Exposition Universelle" in Paris in 1937. During World War I he was awarded the Cross of War while serving in the area around Senones. Sartorio went on to create several war memorials. He was commissioned to create a temporary cenotaph placed under the Arc de Triomphe for the great victory celebrations held in Paris in 1919. He worked on the Santos monument Andradas in 1922, the Opéra de Marseille in 1924, the Marseille Monument de l’Armée d’Orient in 1927, La Méditerranée" and "La Durance" for the Cavaillon bridge in 1932, decoration on the Marseille Palais de Justice in 1933, work on the monument to Alexandre 1st of Yougoslavie and the “seven deadly sins" for Marseille's Baumettes Prison in 1938.
