Angiolo Vannetti (1881-1962) Monumental Bronze of Fighting Tigers, Signed
A monumental bronze sculpture of “Tiger Fight” signed by Italian sculptor, Angiolo Vannetti (1881-1962). In good antique condition, with heavy patina throughout. Structurally sound.
From Elena Lago for Berardi Art Gallery in Rome, “Angiolo Vannetti was born in Livorno in 1881, but trained at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, where he was a pupil of Augusto Rivalta. Inheriting Rivalta’s marked verista vein, but also his tendency towards imaginative composition and fresh, expressive modelling, the young sculptor specialised in the production of animalier subjects from an early age.
“In Milan, in 1928, he exhibited Tiger Fight, Monkey with Duck, Macaque and Towards the Unknown with the Gruppo Labronico. At the Regional Exhibition of Tuscan Art in 1930 he presented Chinese Lord of Malacca, Chinese Lady of Malacca and The Mother.” – Elena Lago
