Bas relief of Isadora Duncan-signed & numbered-Randy Meadows
In 1983, I purchased a wonderful piece, signed and numbered in a series of 212, by Mr. Lucchesi. It is a Bas-Relief (I believe a paper sculpture) of Isadora Duncan. As embarrassed as I am to admit, I was not familiar with Mr. Lucchesi's work when I secured the piece, but my untrained, but appreciative eye, and love of art, told me that this piece was executed by one who possessed a pair of extraordinary hands and in the finished product, created a portrayal which I found absolutely incredible, as I had seen many reliefs, similar in style, but ultimately fell disappointingly short of the level of finite reality of Mr. Lucchesi's work. It is a large piece, completely encased in plexiglass, and when viewed, it seems as if one can almost feel and hear the movement of air from Duncan's flowing dress as she gracefully, quietly brushes by on the wind!
If anyone knows anything about this piece, or has ever seen one, can you please share with me?
I'm not wishing to sell it. I have had it so long, that it has become a part of that which defines my home.
I do know, that I saw the piece years ago, in an advertisement in Architectural Digest. I will be happy to send anyone an e-mail with the picture attached if you so wish, but any information anyone can share would be most appreciated.

I have been a fan of Mr. Lucchesi for many years and am interested in a workshop. I am a high school sculpture teacher, I think what I would gain from him would be invaluable information I can pass on to my students. Can someone help me by providing some information as to where Mr. Lucchesi will be teaching workshops in the future?
