Giuseppe Bianchi cast bronze sculpture depicting a group of three female figures wrapped around a square pillar, three naked women holding up a torch, a flame or something similar. One of the figure holds the wheel of a cart.
This bronze sculpture expression of Italian Symbolist currents of the 1920s. is signed on the base G.Bianchi (Como 1864 - 1944) rests on a square marble base and has a beautiful dark patina, in good condition.
The modeling looseness of this composition, the deforming line of the three female figures, almost untied by anatomical reality, but of strong emotional and spiritual impact, are characteristics that place the sculpture in the second decade of the twentieth century, to the symbolist currents of the 1920s. Bianchi Giuseppe (Como 1864 - 1944) took part in the National Exhibition in Brera in 1922 with "Care Rimembranze" a marble sculpture. Some of his works are also present in the Art Collections of the Ospedale Maggiore in Milan.
