Fontaine / Place du Marché

François Stahly

Photography Étienne Revault

Located in Asnières, France, this fountain made of agglomerated stones by Swiss artist François Stahly (1911—2006) was conceived as a way to balance the functionalist style of the surrounding housing estates. Over the years, the fountain has been seriously vandalized and the Place du Nouveau Marché where it is located is nowadays not as busy as it used to be. Although part of a large series of outdoor sculptures and fountains Stahly made during his underestimated career, this one is a very rare example of a work inspired by the marine world.
