Marisol Escobar

Yesterday (May 21) was the birthday of sculptor Marisol Escobar (or just Marisol) born in 1930. She enjoyed short-lived fame in the Sixties and again in the 21st century before her death in 2016. She found inspiration for her portraits from photos and memory and incorporated found objects, such as the door and sneakers seen in The Family. I love this piece and hope to see something like it in the gallery soon. How about you?
