P. Emilio Fiaschi
Emilio Fiaschi (1858 – 1941) was an Italian sculptor. He was presumed to have been from Volterra. From 1883 to 1885, he studied at Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze and spent most of his career in Florence, Italy. He was skilled in sculpting both marble, bronze and alabaster and most often produced female nudes, elephants and camels. His female nudes featured highly polished skin and emphasized the curves of hips and waistlines. A partial list of his works include Le Printemps (marble on black marble pedestal, c.1900-1910) which sold for $25,000 at Christie's in New York on April 13, 2017.
