Adolfo Cipriani (fl. 1880-1930) was an important Italian sculptor, working mostly in marble for the luxury market of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. He specialised in busts and large figurative sculptures such as the present group.
The group shows a full length female figure holding navigation tools - including a compass and a chart - on a rectangular base which is signed 'A. Cipriani'. To the left of the figure is a small child shown with a bowl. Harmonious elements, strict proportions and weighty subject matter are the defining features of the sculpture.
Allegorical depictions of concepts such as Navigation were popular during the Italian Renaissance, and were the subjects of paintings by artists such as Paolo Veronese (1528-1588).
The figure comes with a square marble plinth, making the total height of the piece just under 2 metres. The individual parts have the following dimensions:
Figure- Height 152cm, width 63cm, depth 46cm
Plinth- Height 46cm, width 63cm, depth 53cm
