Enzo Plazzotta (Italian 1921-1981): a bronze figure of My Swallow covering a mare
stamped with foundry and signature and numbered 6/9, 51cm long x 42cm high, on slate plinth.

Footnotes

  • My Swallow was bought by the Hollywood film director, Irving Allen, for £1,000,000 after he won the 2000 Guineas, and sent to stud at Dersley Wood, Newmarket. Allen commissioned Plazzotta to do the subject, and invited the artist to the Stud to study the horse in action, before he returned to the studio to produce the maquette for the series of nine bronzes.
