20th Century Fausto Melotti Decorative Bowl in Green Enameled Ceramic, 50s

About the Item

Fausto Melotti (Rovereto 1901 - Milan 1986) was an Italian sculptor, painter and musician. He was born in Rovereto when it belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and he attended the Royal Elizabethan School. At the outbreak of World War I, he moved to Florence, where he came into contact with avant-garde literati and artists and had the opportunity to closely observe the works of Florentine Renaissance artists such as Giotto, Simone Martini, Sandro Botticelli, Donatello and Michelangelo. After various musical studies, he decided to devote himself to sculpture. His style changes over the years, but he always follows his very personal research, aimed at articulating space according to rhythms with a musical flavor. Here we have a decorative bowl in green enameled ceramic, an object that Fausto melotti produced in a great amount with always different and unique shades. We dispose of 4 of them as shown in photos. Good condition, completely original. Presence of Melotti signature made of 7 points on the bottom of the bowl as shown in photos. Certificate of autenticity available. We recommend a wooden crate for shipping as it is very fragile.
