Bronze sculpture details
Striding along deep in thought, a garment flapping around the legs – de Angelis exhibits a modern version of the classical fall of the folds.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Giovanni de Angelis
Giovanni de Angelis grew up in a family of artists on Ischia. His talent and his interest in the fine arts were therefore encouraged early on. At the young age of eleven, he was already considered a “wunderkind” and won his first prize (the Milan “Primo Premio del Fanciullo Artista”, the “First Prize for a Boy Artist”), and the next year, the twelve-year-old spent time at the studio of the renowned sculptor Alexander Zschokke in Basel.
