Bath Time by Raffaello Romanelli

Description

Marble sculpture representing two children going to bath. The older child is bathing the younger child who loses balance while the basin slides under his feet. As he loses balance, he clings to the clothes of her older brother who catch him up to help him.

The Sculpture is signed « R.Romanelli” which stands for Raffaello Romanelli (1856 – 1928).

            Raffaello, who’s father was the famous sculptor Pasquale Romanelli, started his training at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence with Augusto Rivalta as teacher.

The quality, finesse and details present in this sculpture show how well Romanelli and his workshop were able to work with marble. There is no doubt that the attention paid to the sculptures signed by the master Raffaello Romanelli was much more important than that of other artists. These sculptures were to represent the artistic quality of the sculptor but also the expertise of the workshop on the international scene.
