Return To Glossary

Antonio Frilli (d. 1902) was a highly skilled marble sculptor working in Florence in the late 19th and into the early 20th century.

In 1860, Frilli established the Galleria Frilli in Florence, where he crafted refined painted alabasters and large white Carrara marble statues for private villas and monumental cemeteries. Frilli specialised in decorative busts and figures in the Neoclassical style, which he crafted with extraordinary technical accomplishment. The Galleria Frilli became well-known across the world, and still exists in Florence today.
