Altought little is known about the artist in literature, all the sculptures we found back from him testify great skill and virtuosity. Most sculpture that we examined were very popular at auctions around the world. This sculpture is a perfect example of an Art Deco sculpture of high quality. The elegance of the subject, the details of the carving and the purity of the marble shows us how talented and precise the artist was. We know that Antonio Frilli owned a well-known workshop in Florence and that he worked on several monuments, busts and funerary works.
