Nivola worked on several studies as he developed his design for the Olivetti Showroom mural. A number of abstracted figures recur across the studies and Nivola experimented with their size and configuration. Untitled [Study for the Olivetti Showroom in New York] incorporates another work on exhibit here within its design but at a much-reduced scale. The richly patterned figures against a vibrant backdrop of yellow and orange appear in the heart of a large, winged figure. There is much that remains of the composition in the full-scale work, with the exception of color. The work in situ was left unpainted to preserve the overall balance of the space designed by the architect studio BBPR.
