The Naples Art Association at The von Liebig Art Center has installed a sculpture by Cuban artist Manuel Carbonell at the main entrance to the building. The work, titled “Torso” is a bronze sculpture with black patina. Carbonell is the last of the Cuban modern master sculptors of his generation. His work is often regarded alongside other internationally-known greats including Rodin, Henry Moore, Brancusi, and Lipchitz. His sculptures are unmistakably modern; he masterfully transforms metal materials such as bronze into works of beauty, grace and harmony.

The sculpture will remain on site for at least the next six months. The von Liebig Art Center is located at 585 Park Street in Naples, Florida and is operated by the Naples Art Association, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. For more information, please call 239.262.6517 or naplesart.org.
