Catalogue Note

Fiaschi was one of a group of highly skilled marble sculptors working in Florence in the late 19th century. Concentrating on genre themes and the nude, Fiaschi produced marble editions with great consistency of quality. In the present marble Fiaschi skilfully emphasises the female form by accentuating the waistline, while the coarse architectural fragment draws attention to the soft polish of the skin. Fiaschi studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence between 1883 and 1885 and won a medal at an art competition in his presumed hometown Volterra in 1890.
