PROPERTY FROM AN AMERICAN PRIVATE COLLECTION
Lazzerini’s catalogue of works includes his own diverse array of subjects, and also works in the style of other sculptors both in Italy and abroad. His work clearly reflects the powerful influences of Neoclassicism from his mentor Tenerani: who had been influenced by his teachers Bartolini and Thorwaldsen. In this present work Tenerani’s tutelage is visible. Seen both in regards to the refined and sophisticated techniques Lazzerini used, and in the young attractive subject he chose as it was during his time of scholarship in Rome under Tenerani, in 1856, that Lazzerini created the original, identical version of this work. The original La fanciulla che intreccia una ghirlanda resides in the Accademia di Belle Arti, Carrara. The date and inscription on the base of the present work indicate that this was also produced during Lazzerini’s apprenticeship under Tenerani, most likely right before his return to Carrara.
