Andrea Mantegna, renaissance artist and a pioneer of the use of perspective in the European tradition inspired this monumental, hand rusted steel sculpture. Di Teana, whose childhood in Italy endowed him with a heightened respect for the heroic figures of the Renaissance, here honors his predecessor with a composition of retreating lines and a single, recessed, vertical spire—a composition that harkens back to the landscapes for which the painter is largely remembered.
