Bronze / test sample of the artist / signed / 1970-1980 / no frame
On the occasion of 710 years after the death of Dante Alighieri, on the commission of the Vatican, Master Tommaso Gismondi created this work.
First born of four brothers, Thomas was born in Anagni in 1906 to Carlo Gismondi and Angela Ferretti, but moved as a boy with his family to Rome. During the post-war period, he went to Buenos Aires in Argentina, then returned to Anagni in the late 1950s.
He became known as "the Pope's sculptor" for the works commissioned by Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II: some of his most famous works are the doors of the Vatican Library and of the Vatican Secret Archive (1985), some bronze sculptures from the St. Peter's Basilica, the throne of John Paul II and the Via Crucis.
He was also a popular caster of coins from the Vatican and from Italy. (Wiki)
