Footnotes

  • Pietro Bazzanti was a key figure in the production of Florentine sculpture at the end of the 19th century. He specialised in allegorical and genre subjects as well as copies of Antique and Renaissance sculpture. He was regarded as one of the most talented sculptors of his day and his studio in Florence became a centre for other important sculptors such as Ferdinando Vichi, Cesare Lapini and Guglielmo Pugi. Many of these sculptor's works were signed in English and inscribed Galleria Bazzanti or Gallery Bazzanti for the British or American markets.
