Face mask after a design by Pablo Gargallo, mounted on an iron base.
Pablo Emilio Gargallo (1881 – 1934) was a sculptor and painter. Gargallo developed a style of sculpture based on the creation of three-dimensional objects from pieces of flat metal plate, and he also used paper or cardboard. Some of these sculptures have a form of cubism. He also made more traditional sculptures in bronze, marble and other materials. Among Gargallo's works are three pieces based on Greta Garbo and his friend Pablo Picasso whose head he modelled as a sculpture. He is considered one of the most significant artists of the Spanish avant-garde.
