This rare 19th century Italian sculpture by the Florentine sculptor Fortunato GALLI, 1830 -1918, is among the very best of his figurative work. It is over 3.5 ft high and features a Mariner looking out to sea. The subject is a challenging one to create, given the delicacy of the structures involved, but it is entirely successful and movingly beautiful. Every detail is perfectly carved in Carrara marble. This work by Galli is both remarkable in its execution and breathtaking in its beauty, and is representative of the best work of the decorative Florentine sculptors of the nineteenth century.
