What is a Maquette?

Maquette is the term used for a scale model of a sculpture which is not finished yet. It serves as a rough draft so that the artist can test ideas about the sculpture without spending the effort and cost to make the full-size sculpture.

Bay Area Figurative Art

The Bay Area Figurative Movement, which also goes by the names Bay Area Figurative School, Bay Area Figurative Art, or Bay Area Figuration, came to existence in San-Francisco Bay Area. This was in the mid-20th century, when a group of artists from the area stopped working on the then popular Abstract Expressionism for a preference to figuration in painting. The movement lasted a total of two decades during the 1950's and 1960's.
