ALCALDE

Lucas Alcalde (1949-). Spanish sculptor.
If I'm not mistaken, this monument is dedicated to Industry; nothing more wrong. Moreover, the location is unhappy and the base could not be worse. But the artist's work (I mean the sculpture in itself) remains beautiful and exciting. Of course it does not possess the dramatic tension of analogous Mestrovich's works, as it does not possess the descriptive power of Vuchetich, but it is already very much that a contemporary artist has the courage to propose a work so much against the tide!
