> DESCRIPTION

Peter Dallos' War Series ( nine sculptures) has been acquired by the US Holocaust Memorialk Museum for its permanent collection. The pieces in this series, reflecting war memories, are semi-abstract, but with clearly recognizable elements.  They are welded steel; many are painted black to best reflect their somber subject matter.  The victims are represented by thin brass bars, usually over-towered by their foreboding environments.  While the pieces tell stories, they are highly sculptural semi-abstract entities.
