Full Description


Pietro Bazzanti was a central figure in the production of Florentine sculpture at the end of the 19th century. He is associated with the sculptors Cesare Lapini, Ferdinando Vichi and Guglielmo Pugi, all of whom executed works bearing the inscription Galleria Bazzanti. The gallery, originally Bazzanti's studio, is still open today. The proverbial title is typical of Bazzanti's oeuvre which concentrates on allegorical and genre subjects. The young girl amply illustrates it as she tries to crochet and read her book at the same time, whilst the ball of wool threatens to roll off her lap. Pietro Bazzanti 1842-1881 ITALIAN IL TEMPO PREZIOSO (TIME IS PRECIOUS) signed: P. BAZZANTI FIRENZE and entitled: IL TEMPO PREZIOSO white marble
