Description:
Vittorio Caradossi (Italian/Florence, 1861-1918) "The Nereids" carved alabaster the nymphs of the sea sinuously twisting against a rocky outcropping, signed at back, on a thin black marble base. h. 37-1/2" w. 15-1/2", d. 18", base h. 1-1/2" Notes: Caradossi attended the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze, studying under the acclaimed sculptor Augusto Rivalta (1837-1925). Eschewing the grand historicizing monuments espoused by his teacher, Caradossi specialized in Classical or Allegorical depictions of the elegant nude female form. These exquisitely carved sculptures are surprisingly complex in composition, with entwined, twisting figures.

Description:
Vittorio Caradossi ITALIAN NYMPH AND CHIMERA 1861 - 1909 signed Prof. V. Caradossi white marble 102 by 77cm., 40 1/8 by 30 3/8 in. Catalogue Note Superbly carved, with beautiful contrasting polished and textured surfaces, this remarkable marble by Vittorio Caradossi is a testament to the exceptional abilities of Italian 19th-century sculptors to carve marble to dazzling effect. The group is indebted to Renaissance and Neoclassical precedents, showing both Caradossi's erudition and his skill as a marble carver. The nymph recalls, in her pose, the figure of Deianira from Giambologna's Nessus and Deianira group, one of the most celebrated Florentine Mannerist models. The Chimera, on the other had, with its fearsome expression, is indebted to the sculptures of leopards created by Francesco Antonio Franzoni (1734-1818), of which the most famous is in the Sala degli Animali in the Vatican, although the present Chimera is particularly close to a leopard attributed to Franzoni in the Honolulu Museum of Art (inv. no. 3240.1). In combining a young nude with a mythical creature, the present marble is reminiscent of Caradossi's Leda and the Swan, of which a version was sold at Christie's London for £194,500 against an estimate of £80,000-120,00 on 6 March 2014, lot 150. Vittorio Caradossi was born in Florence and studied sculpture under Augusto Rivalta at the Accademia di Belle Arti. His genre epitomizes fin-de-siècle Tuscan sculpture. Technically superb, most of his oeuvre is dominated by highly-decorative groups and single nude figures in various symbolic or allegorical guises. In works such as Tre Nereidi (Three Mermaids), Il Fumo che sale verso le Nubi (Smoke Sweeping up to the Clouds), and Shooting Stars, Caradossi was clearly catering to a strong demand from an international clientele for elaborate and sensual compositions. Sotheby's achieved the record for the sculptor with his Shooting Stars which sold at Sotheby's New York on 8 November 2013, lot 12, for $689,000 against an . RELATED LITERATURE A.

London
Born in 1861, Vittorio Caradossi studied under Augusto Rivalta (d. 1925) at the Accademia di Belle Arti and was later commissioned to execute a number of public monuments. Though he is most remembered for his celebrated statue of the Renaissance artist Desiderio da Settignano, the model for which was exhibited at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle, the artist specialized in depictions of celestial and ethereal nudes, such as the present group of intertwined nymphs. Here Caradossi, a virtuoso marble-carver, effortlessly achieves uninhibited movement in this exceptionally balanced work, which is hewn from a single block of Carrara marble. A slightly larger example of this popular work was sold at Sotheby's, New York, 8 November 2013, lot 114 .

Vittorio Caradossi was born in Florence and studied sculpture under Augusto Rivalta at the Accademia di Belle Arti. He is renowned for his large sensuous nudes, often in allegorical or celestial guises; but was also commissioned for numerous important public monuments. His most famous is the monument to the Renaissance artist Desiderio da Settignano, and the model for this was exhibited at the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1900.
