NEW YORK, NY.- Beginning today, Sotheby’s hosts a selling exhibition of works by globally renowned Italian sculptor and conceptual artist, Giuseppe Penone, entitled When Man Meets Nature. Presenting 36 works, this selling exhibition is one of the biggest shows of its kind in New York and features all mediums of his work including bronze, stone, photography and works on paper. As a member of the Italian modern art movement Arte Povera, Penone aims to integrate art with nature. When Man Meets Nature opens in New York during an exciting time for the artist.
