Signed: Ces: Fantacchiotti fece Firenze and inscribed: Fond: Galli Firenze.

Cesare Fantachiotti was the son of a sculptor, Odoardo Fantachiotti, and studied at the Accademia in Florence. His works range from the slightly classicising marble nude ‘Eve’ in the Galleria Civica d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea to lively genre subjects such as the present model. Using the talents of the founders of the Fonderia Galli, Fantachiotti brings his Oriental dancer vividly to life with a luxurious double patination.

Cesare Fantacchiotii studied under his father the sculptor Odoardo Fantacchiotti before attending the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. Moving away from his fathers restrained Neo-Classical representations, Cesare developed an individual style characterised by the naturalistic depiction of romantic subjects.

His works included ‘St Stephen’ (Protestant Church Florence), ‘King Rama V’ (Bangkok, 1901), ‘Vittorio Emanuele II’ (City of Meldola), ‘Garibaldi’ (1886), ‘Moliere and Savonarola’ (1884) and ‘Romeo and Juliet’ (1899, Melbourne). He held numerous exhibitions in Turin (1884), Naples (1877), London (1871 and 1888), Rome (1883), Florence (1884 and 1910) and Livorno (1886).

He became a resident Professor of Sculpture at the Florence Academy for Fine arts in 1887.
