A metal statue in grey veined marble depicting a woman bent on one knee, signed below the base Mazzullo (1913-1988). Giuseppe Mazzullo was born in Graniti (ME) in 1913. He graduated from the 'Pietro Vannucci' Academy of Fine Arts in Perugia in 1932 and in 1939 moved to Rome to teach first at the Art Institute and from 1959 onwards at the Academy of Fine Arts. An extremely skilful draughtsman, he cultivated a passion for working with stone from an early age and so, although he did not disdain working with clay, bronze or wood, his sculptures mainly took shape from boulders recovered from the banks of streams or quarries. He was the protagonist of solo and group exhibitions all over the world; he participated in four editions of the Venice Biennale (1950, 1952, 1954, 1966 with a solo room presented by Marcello Venturoli) and eight editions of the Rome Quadriennale (1935, 1939, 1943, 1948, 1952, 1956, 1960 with a solo room presented by Ferruccio Ulivi, 1972). During the Nazi occupation and in the post-war period, his house in Via Sabazio was a meeting place for artists and intellectuals of all professional, ideological and thought persuasions such as, among many others, Renato Guttuso, Pietro Consagra, Roberto Matta, Renzo Vespignani, Roberto Melli, Cesare Zavattini, Rafael Alberti, Giuseppe Ungaretti, Vann'Antò, Stefano D'Arrigo. In the mid-1970s, after leaving teaching at the Academy, Mazzullo returned definitively to Sicily; on the slopes of Mount Etna he set up a large workshop in which he was able to realise the last phase of his sculptures, in lava stone and granite, some of monumental dimensions. He died in Taormina in 1988. Due to the complexity and quality of his sculptures, he is considered a unique figure in the artistic panorama of the 20th century. His works are held in prestigious public and private collections all over the world. Measures 10.5 x 6 x h 19.
