His real name : Ugo Cipriani. Born in Firenze (Italy), he is the son of the sculptor Adolfo Cipriani. After studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Firenze, where he worked on marble, earth and bronze, he realized the monumental bust of the nationalist Guggleilmo Oberdan for the square of the same name in Florence. An Italian artist who is emblematic of the Art Deco movement, he emigrated in 1935, to escape the fascist regime of Mussolini. Now a political refugee, he remained in Paris until his death. His work is prolific, illustrated notably by his famous "Diane chasseresse" and magnificent "Woman of the thirties" often accompanied by deer or greyhounds.
Signature: Signed engraved "URIANO" on the marble base.
