Duso and numbered on the bottom 408/s These pieces were hand sculptured without a mold, making each sculpture unique. 6" tall x 6" wide base. There is a hairline fracture on the neck, indicating a possible repair.Duso's partners at Lo Scricciolo. Were Toni Moretto (1929 - 2013), and Adriano Colombo (1940 -). Iovanni Duso was born in Costabissara, in the province of Vicenza, in 1936. His background is typical of that Italian provincial area restricted between two exceptional museum cities: Venice and Vicenza. Duso has an extraordinary bent for art that has allowed him to imitate from the masters of the Renaissance to arrive at the painting of the 18th Century through the Flemish School. A sculptor first, then a painter, and then a sculptor again, Duso has matured his experience through a long art season in Paris, when the lessons of Tiepolo, Guardi and Canaletto slashed with those of the impressionists. His blurred skies over a barely outlined landscape prevailed, and his water colors have toured half of Europe. Then his ancient love stemmed the current, and Duso went back to clay.
France has consecrated the success if his fin de sièce little dames. Many of them are in a number of major museums (Sydney, Munich, Amsterdam) while those moulded between 1966 and 1970 are now collector pieces. He has had one man shows in Florence, Milan, Rome, Naples and has participated in Italian art exhibitions in Hong Kong, New York and London.
