This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Massa, a commune in the Carrara province of Italy, Furio Piccirilli became a sculptor of public monuments and figural works with allegorical themes.  Many of his pieces were carved marble.  He emigrated to New York City with his family, and worked from a studio on 142nd Street in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx. 

Furio Piccirilli was one of six sons of Giuseppe Piccirilli.  He studied sculpture at the Academia San Luca in Rome, and then emigrated to New York City with his parents and brothers in 1888.  The father, with his six sons, established a marble-cutting studio that specialized in stone modeling and carving for the leading sculptors of their day.

Among the sculptures by Furio were The Pioneer Woman, a memorial on the campus of Texas Women's University at Denton, Texas; the John McDonogh monument in Lafayette Squre in New Orleans; and sculptural decoration for the Parliament House in Winnipeg, Canada.

He was a member of the Architectural League of New York and of the National Academy of Design.  Exhibitions included the St. Louis Expo of 1904, the Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco of 1915; and the Pennsylvania Academy between 1904 and 1912.
