About the Item

RENZO COLOMBO Italian, (1856-1885) Bust of Napoleon Bonaparte Patinated bronze; Signed R. Colombo 1885 on Right Side 22 x 15 inches Notes: The bust depicts Napoleon having a firm expression or a determined commander, wearing his bicorne hat, an eagle spreading its wings below him. Renzo Colombo studied at the Brera Academy of Fine Art. After a period working in Rome he returned to his home town of Gallarate where he executed busts, medals and funerary monuments, producing his Tasso Morente in 1878, partially inspired by the Napoleon by Vicenza Vela.
