Marble Sculpture by Nardo Dunchi, Italy, H 51 cm

Nardo Dunchi (February 24, 1914 – May 7, 2010) was one of the major figures in the marble scene in Carrara, a hero of the Italian resistance during World War II as well as an alpinist and a writer.
After the war, he tried to solve the problem expressed by Arturo Martini (of which he was a pupil) in “Sculpture, language death”, creating works based on “Harmony of lights and shadows”. Nardo held many solo exhibitions and sculpted several public monuments. He also produced some abstract pieces cast in bronze.
In 2004, he expressed his vision of art in a book titled “Memorie artistiche” in which he narrated his years in Paris, in the Montparnasse district, where he was part of the elite of the artists of that period.
