Italian Marble Statues
Italy's always been famous for its outstanding artistic skills in producing some of the most superb sculptures in Europe, and Italian artists continue to play a leading role in the modern development of this art well into the 21st century. From Italy Online would like to present an exciting collection of marble objects thoughtfully compiled to add a touch of the Antique and Classical culture to the overall decor of your house.
The selection of statues
The works of art in our marble collection are skillfully created by the great Italian sculptors Ruggeri, Furiesi and Santini commissioned to re-create world-famous sculptures for some of the most authoritative museums in the world, like the Vatican Museum, the Metropolitan Museum and the Hermitage, among others. In our online store, you can choose from some of their original works as well as their reproductions of the most astonishing examples of European artistic genius, such as:
the Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli, the most outstanding representative of the Early Renaissance in Italy;
the Bather by Christophe-Gabriel Allegrain, a sensational phenomenon in the Neoclassical French art;
the Pieta and David by the incomparable Michelangelo, whose influence on the development of Western art has remained unparalleled ever since;
the Mercury by Jean de Boulogne, a Flemish genius highly praised for his masterful treatment of marble and bronze in the Late Renaissance;
some of the most exquisite contributions of the Ancient Greek culture to the history of European art, including the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace both dating back to the pre-Christian Era;
mesmerising sculptures of the commonly accepted as the greatest neoclassical artist Antonio Canova, including the Ballerina, the Venus Victrix, the Psyche and the Cupid, the Pauline Borghese, and by far the most gracious and erotic of all his work, the Three Graces series.
The physical characteristics
All the sculptures are made of marble powder, which may be white or grey upon your personal request. The bases are made of either marble or wood. Some statues can be hand-painted for an additional charge.
The statues vary in size and weight from small and light ones (26 cm, 1.1 kg) to fairly tall sculptures of over one meter that weigh as much as 43 kg.
