A cut and welded bronze abstract sculpture of Don Quixote by American artist Gene Caples. This piece comes from the artist's estate. Eugene Caples (1935 -2105) was a designer and craftsman who worked in Kansas City in the 1960s and later through the early 21st century. He attended the Kansas City Art Institute, earning his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Industrial Design in 1959. In 1963 he was accepted to Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Michigan where he worked with Julius Schmidt, earning his Masters of Fine Art in Sculpture in 1965. Gene worked primarily with cast, cut and welded bronze in Brutalist abstract designs, experimenting with iron and aluminium as well.
