Review

Late 19th century bust crafted in white marble and alabaster by Guglielmo Pugi (circa 1850-1915), Italian sculptor active in Florence between 1870 and 1915. The portrait captures the noble visage of a woman wearing a turban. The turban and dress are finely decorated with embroidery. Signed in the back: "Pugi". This marble statuette shows the taste of the time for polychrome sculpture and orientalism, still important at the turn of the century in Europe.
