Portrait of the artist Costanzo MonginiItalian sculptor (1918-1981)

Born in 1918 in Milan, the Italian sculptor Costanzo Mongini was in his earliest youth when he drew his artistic steps confidently at the art academies. To him, they seemed to be only sites of the exaggerated self-expression. Mongini wanted to preserve its own approach to the art and went his way as a self-taught artist.

Mongini covers without groping experimentation what corresponded to his nature: The study of the great art of the past and make the exact nature observation based with a symbolic value charged, volcanic explosive moment. "What is today called avant-garde, I am not interested", confessed the sculptor. The success proved him right, his triumphant bronze Church portal in Portofino has become a Mecca for art lovers from all over the world. Mongini realizes his sculptures, of which stands the portrait of Cardinal Ottaviani in the private collection of the Vatican, not as static but as eccentric and intensely provocative. Mongini came through exhibitions of Beirut to Munich to world fame, he is well known and popular especially among collectors in Italy, Germany, England, Australia, the USA and Japan. The artist verse trot in 1981.

Cast stone
Equivalent of artificial marble, with the difference that the substitute stone in powder form is used instead of marble powder.

Cold cast bronze
Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

ARA wooden copy
In order to guarantee absolute fidelity to the original, an artificially manufactured imitation wood is used as a base material which has typical wood characteristics: density, workability, color and surface structure.

Ceramic casting
As a rule castable clay is used in ceramic casting, which then is fired and possibly glazed. Plaster molds are often used instead of the usual rubber molds in ceramic casting and in porcelain production.

Bronze casting
In this case, the thousand-year-old lost-wax technique is used. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.

Bronze casting
Lost-wax casting technique

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

Designation for an art object (sculpture, installation), which is produced according to the will of the artist in multiple copies in a limited and numbered edition.

Artist's multiple contributed to "democratization" of art as the work was made available and affordable for a wider audience.
