Geometry in art, and more specifically in the field of sculpture, has many definitions. Indeed, a geometrical sculpture can be figurative or abstract, very minimal or of a great complexity in its shapes and sizes. And it is precisely this polymorphic character that makes it so original and never ceases to seduce the viewer’s eye. On the market for an original sculpture?

Geometry has always been present in the arts, if only in the construction of buildings and habitats that could be built thanks to mathematical laws and geometric theorems. In the history of art, we hear talk of geometric sculpture very early on. The proto-geometric period in ancient Greek sculpture (between 1050 and 900 B.C.), for example, was marked by the production of small terracotta figurines whose particularity was that they were composed almost exclusively of geometric shapes.
In the Middle Ages, as well as during the Renaissance and until the beginning of the 20th century, geometry in sculpture was mainly used in the interior and exterior decoration of buildings. It was not until avant-garde artists reintroduced geometry in a more consistent and radical way that the artistic community and the applied arts in general, began to pay more attention to it’s evolution. It first occurred with the Cubists, who, in the footsteps of Paul Cézanne, began to think and conceive space in geometric forms, followed by the Futurists, Suprematists, Constructivists and Minimalists.
