Bronze Greyhounds by Bazzoni*

Item Description

Wonderful pair of Art Deco stylised racing greyhounds by the noted Italian sculptor Alberto Bazzoni (born Parma, 1889).

Cast in bronze, these lean and streamlined creatures are captured in full flight, each one vying to stay ahead of the other.

Finished with a very pleasing bronzy-green patina and mounted on a black marble base.

Showing the signature A Bazzony – his name was spelled either way – and also marked ‘bronze’.

After studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Parma, Bazzoni completed a number of well received public works before moving to Milan in1926.  Ten years later he relocated to Paris to further his career there until the outbreak of war. This sculpture almost certainly dates from his Paris period.

The plinth is a touch under 10 cm wide and around 68 cm long.  The nose of the leading greyhound does however extend a further 1 cm or so beyond the base.  Overall height of the piece is approximately 20.5 cm.
