A Signed Bronze Ballerina by Italian Sculptor Sergio Benvenuto, Italy, 1950s

$ 6,500
  • Description
    A Large Bronze Ballerina signed Sergio Benvenuto. A finely sculpted bronze as only Benvenuto can. Here he shines his favorite subject matter, The Ballerina. She stands poised and confident, head held high, legs firmly planted.

    Italy, 1950s

    When Benvenuti arrived in Florence, Antonio Berti, an official sculptor to the Vatican and to the Royal Family, gave him a formidable training. A sculptor was supposed to be like an athlete – he had to prove himself to be strong and capable. In 1956,Benvenuti was asked by Berti to be his assistant in making a bronze dedicated to Alcide De Gasperi. Alongside sculpture, he has worked a great deal for the stage, designing numerous setting for Florence’s Teatro Comunale and Milan’s Scala. This passion of his for the theatre can clearly be seen in his ballerinas which have contributed to spread his fame all the way to Japan, where an important department store acquired and exhibited them in Tokyo and Kyoto stores.
