Art Nouveau Italian Scupture Terracotta, Lioness with Her Lions, A Amorgasti



Amazing sculpture in patinated bronze terracotta, "Lioness with her lions" by Antoine Amorgasti, born in 1880 in Pisa and died in Antwerp, Belgium in 1942. He studied sculpture at the Academy of Berchem and Antwerp in the studio of Josue Dupon. He is well known and valued for the sculptures of animals in bronze and patinated terracotta as if it were bronze, as is the case at hand, this sculpture is in patinated terracotta in greens and browns that simulate bronze. It represents a Lioness with her cubs, of great naturalism and artistic emotion. The piece is signed, numbered and with DEPOSE written on it. A true collector's item.
