A year ago Katie Hosmer posted the following article:
I was unable to find Nino Orlandi biography.
However, I found a video that shows many not only his wooden sculptures but
also other sculptures and paintings.
You can see everything HERE.
There were always many talented people in Russia.
They appeared despite wars, revolutions, mass repressions, famines, terrible conditions of living.
Georgy Kurasov is one of them. Please read about his life and see his art below.
Bruno Torfs’ life is amazing. He traveled a lot, created many beautiful paintings and then drastically changed his direction.
You can read about Bruno and see his Art and Sculpture Garden HERE.
And you can see both his sculptures and his paintings HERE.
However, life is unpredictable. In 2009 Bruno Torfs and his family were in terrible danger.
They survived but their home and his gallery were completely destroyed.
You can read about it and to see that Bruno did not surrender HERE.
He restored his home and the Garden. The Garden is open to visitors again!
I am not sure how many people today know about the biography and the art of Erte. If you don’t know about him please read it HERE.
For me Erte is most known by his bronze sculptures. I loved elegance of his bronze women from the moment I saw them for the first time.
You can see these sculptures below.
Here is the famous “Symphony in Black” by Erte:
Many years ago with a group of friends I visited the Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museum in London.
I remember that it was cold that day and I was wearing a short black leather coat.
After I examined all exhibits I stayed quietly waiting for my friends. There were three young
Japanese girls nearby who looked at the group of wax figures near me. Then they turned
to me and started to discuss something.
At that moment my friends came to me and I asked them if they were ready to go.
The Japanese girls were very surprised! They could not believe that a wax figure could talk!
Many years passed and now we have an artist/sculptor who makes even more realistic figures using new methods.
Her name is Carole Feuerman.
You can read an article in Wikipedia about her and her works HERE.
I also like an article about her art with images of her resin sculptures HERE.
