Bronzes

A bronze is a sculpture made from an alloy of copper and tin. The techniques to create a work of this type have been known since earliest antiquity. After creating a model, the artist makes a mould that he fills with molten metal.

As it hardens, bronze expands and infiltrates the mould to give shape to the tiniest details of the work. The Greeks revealed themselves to be particularly talented at working it and produced a considerable number of art bronzes. It was, moreover, they who introduced the first sculptures of human scale.
