James Prestini

James Prestini (American, 1908–1993) was a skilled craftsman, sculptor, and educator. He often used steel and aluminum to create his polished sculptures, many of which were featured in a retrospective exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 1969.

His work can also be found in the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
