Monumental Brutalist Necklace Pewter, Pal Kapenyes c. 1960
An incredible Brutalist necklace by sculptor Pal Kapenyes circa 1960. Jailed as a political prisoner of the Hungarian Revolution , Kapenyes served five years and then moved to Mexico in 1960 where he became a renowned artist of the Modernist movement. This piece is made in pewter and has an aquatic quality to it, with a Mexican jade cabochon held tightly at its center. It doesn't get much better than this!
Measures 26" length with an additional 3.25" drop for the pendant. Pendant measures 3.25 x 3".
Signed "PAL KAPENYES".
In great condition and looks amazing on!
