Angelo Basso is one of Italy's most prominent figurative sculptors -- an heir to the Baroque tradition of the 1600's.

Basso captures the lush, assertive style of that period in his evocative female figures. His lithe, confident women miraculously glide through sea waves with the rich flowing movement of the Baroque era. Basso's idealized figures are immortalized in magic moments of life or captured in the delicate grace of a courtly dance.

Self-taught, Basso started sculpting at an early age, revealing a distinctive style, in which his profound knowledge of the human anatomy and his technical mastery in creating it in bronze are evident.

Known for the rich, flowing movement of his sculptures, Basso has exhibited his work worldwide and has received many prestigious awards and commissions.

His idealization of the female figure projects a beautiful woman, elegant, proud and confident, yet at the same time soft and gentle, captured in magic moments of life and in the delicate grace of courtly dance.

She moves in a surreal world, alone or accompanied by her mate or by waves and dolphins. The clothing and drapings that reveal her exquisite frame, and the sea waves are allowed to suspend her in space or follow her in her movement. 

What makes Basso's work compelling is the artistry with which he creates the fluid movement of his figures, and the complete technical mastery he employs in the execution of every one of his images. 

Basso's sculptures are executed with the utmost attention to detail and employ materials of the highest quality.
