Pietro Caproni plaster relief of Nike, the winged goddess of victory, circa 1900. In great antique condition, with some loss consistent with age. One relief sold. Right facing relief still available. An RT Facts Find.
From the Caproni Collection: “Over 100 years ago, master craftsman Pietro Caproni was granted permission by museums in Europe such as the Louvre, the Accademia and the British Museum to make molds directly from the museums’ famous sculptures—an honor unheard of today. Using these molds, he was able to recreate the world’s finest masterpieces with unrivaled accuracy. The pieces you see on our site and in our gallery are reproductions of famous sculptures that descend from Caproni’s now-antique casts, and because of that, they capture both the detail and feel of the originals that is unparalleled.”
