Ippazio Antonio Bortone (1847-1938)

He is one of 19th century Italy's foremost sculptors.  His career began at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples where he later became honorary Professor.  He frequently submitted ideas for monuments in various Italian provinces, some of the most notable of his eventual commissions being a bust of King Vittorio Emanuele III of Italy at the National Parliament, and a bust of Gino Capponi, the famous Florentine historian, in Santa Croce, Florence.  As the result of the success of his commissions, he was permitted into various Orders of Knighthood, including The Order of Santi Maurizio e Lazzaro by King Umberto I following the installation of his monument to Quintino Sella in Biella.  One of his more well known sculptures "Fanfulla da Lodi" was widely celebrated when it was exhibited at the Paris Expo in 1887.  The frivolity of the subject matter combined with the refined detail, particularly to the lamb's fur and the girl's expression explains why this artist received wide acclaim during the Italian Fin de Siecle.
