Title A sculpture of Beethoven at Turin, Italy

Young Beethoven has inspired another Italian sculptor: Giovanni Grandi (1943-1894).

This statue has been realized in 1874 and now stands at the Modern Art Gallery (Galleria d'Arte Moderna - Turino).

Beethoven  by Giovanni Grandi...

There are two copies of this work: one belongs to the Trombetzkoy family and the other one is in a private collection.

This bust of the young musician is very original and dynamic. The right arm and the right hand are the expression of the genius and of the creative thinking.

This sculpture is 92 centimetres long, 70 cm high and 37.8 cm wide.

Many thanks to Armando and Gianni...
