Historical Context:
Graceful in its simplicity, Aurora Cañero’s "Boat #1" portrays a single figure rowing a long, narrow racing shell. The lines of the sculpture are slender and elegant. As the Spanish artist does in many of her works, here Cañero incorporates the pedestal into the overall design, suspending the boat atop two slim rods that extend down from the rower’s hands, thus striking a fine balance between the horizontals of the boat and base and the vertical positioning of the oars. Shell and base echo one another in shape, creating a kind of mirror effect or the suggestion of a reflection in the water.
