Description
After Giovanni De Martino - Fonderia Chiurazzi Napoli - Sculpture, Happy smiling street urchin (1) - Bronze (patinated) - Mid 20th century
Italy

Bronze sculpture signed G. De Martino.
Made by the Chiurazzi foundry, with stamp and punch on the side.

As usual, the Chiurazzi foundry manages to convey feelings through their mastery in the casting of the final work. The smiling expression of this boy is the result of the great artistic skills of the sculptor, while the beautiful play of patina shades gives light to his face. The casting details are extraordinarily fine, as can been seen by the beauty of the eyes, nose, ears and lips. A small-sized sculpture yet of great artistic value.

Overall good condition as shown in pictures, some small chippings on the marble base and some small superficial scratches on one cheek.

For some countries, the shipping price varies depending on the GLS or UPS courier.
