Luciano Fabro (1936-2007) was a prolific artist and a central figure in the expansion and redefinition of sculpture in post-war Italy. Associated with the Arte Povera movement, Fabro made use of unconventional objects such as steel tubes, cloth, and newspapers for his works; although he also employed more expensive materials like gold, marble, and bronze. A major retrospective of Fabro’s works was held at the Reina Sofia in Madrid in 2014.
