ENQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM...

'Il Mantovano Volante'

An extremely evocative, dark patinated Art Deco bronze sculpture depicting a racing driver at the wheel, highly reminiscent of the 1925 ‘Automobiliste’ sculpture by Maurice Guiraud-Rivière (French, 1881-1947) although seemingly unsigned. The driver, wearing a very early racing helmet and goggles, similar to the trademark headgear worn by Tazio Nuvolari (Italian, 1892-1953), is depicted fixed in concentration.

The bronze is mounted on a veined marbre rouge base, and dates to circa 1930.
