Antique, Vintage, Modern Sculptures and Carvings

Sculptures played a significant role in the evolution of world culture. In ancient times, sculptures and carvings were used to document the adventurous journey of people. Novica artists carried on the tradition by creating beautiful stones, bronzes, as well as metal sculptures and wood carvings. Sculptures are created using hard or plastic components. Its design can take the form of freestanding, assemblage, kinetic, tableaux, in contexts, or wall sculptures. 

As an art form, sculptures continually develop and evolve over time, expanding their range and introducing new types of artworks. All the major traditional sculptures employed “direct techniques” of carving. In the early twentieth century, antique and vintage sculptures and carvings were regarded as representations of art, imitating mainly human forms. However, the definition of sculptures and carvings became broader than ever in the late twentieth century.

These art pieces are often crafted using a variety of mediums such as clay, metal, wax, fabric, wood, stone, glass, and found objects. At Bidsquare auctions of sculptures and carvings for sale online, you can explore unique works of art from the Gothic, Medieval, and Renaissance period through to the early 20 century and beyond. It has established its reputation as a premier auction house featuring works of art for sale by Barbara Hepworth, Harry Bertoia, and other skilled artists from all around the world.
