A beautiful alabaster bust of a young girl wearing a bonnet and a simple linen dress. Signed A. Cipriani Aldolfo Cipriani was an Italian sculptor born in Florence in 1857. He was quite a prolific sculptor between 1880 and 1930. Despite being prolific not much is known of the man. He specialized in portrait and allegorical figures mainly of women and children. Often in the Art Noveau style, most of all the expressions on his female figures have a very subtle demure serenity about them, as does this one. He had a son Ugo who also became a celebrated sculptor.
