Signed Alberti - in good condition

Large-sized bronze sculpture depicting a woman's face, signed by the sculptor Achille Alberti (Milan, March, 12 1860 – Camnago, July, 15 1943).
Dimensions: 39 x 23 cm, height 55 cm.
Weight 17,000 g.

Biography:

Achille Alberti studied art at the Academy of Brera, where he later taught. Like other fellow students, including Magni and Ripamonti, he realised many sculptures as a decoration for the graves in Milan’s Monumental Cemetery. Initially he focused on social issues, realizing sculptures and monuments which won him international fame,

while he expressed his passion for painting with landscapes, still lifes and portraits. In 1930, in Milan, exposed plaster, marble and bronze sculptures, some thirty canvases, hitherto unknown [4]. He was also a cartoonist for lithographic works.

In 1891 he was awarded two prizes at the Milan Triennale for his bronze sculpture Ignavia, inspired by Dante's themes, which was then exhibited in Vienna in 1894 and is now preserved in Busto Arsizio, at Villa Ottolini. In 1892 his bas-relief Le Odi di Pindaro was exhibited in Munich, while in 1900 he took part to the Universal Exposition in Paris. His work was subject of interest and admiration, leading him to win prizes in all the exhibitions he participated in, both in Italy and Europe.

    Purtroppo il quadro è arrivato completamente distrutto(quadro in una busta è improponibile). Ho contattato il venditore in merito all'oggetto e mi ha detto che non poteva venirmi incontro. Peccato

    Buongiorno, rispondo al suo feedback facendole notare le scorrettezze che in merito lei ha citato. Non metto in dubbio che lei abbia ricevuto il quadretto distrutto ed infatti attraverso la corrispondenza via what up del 22/07 che allego:
    Mia risposta: (22/07/17, 16:05:37: Pasquale: Mi dispiace era veramente carino. Non c'è alcun problema a restituirle la somma che ha speso. Credo che la procedura sua aprire un reclamo con catawiki per ottener il rimborso io non ho ricevuto a tutt'oggi il pagato. Dica pure che ha parlato con me e non c'è alcun problema da parte mia. Cordialità

    Sua risposta:22/07/17, 16:10:50: ‪+39 329 019 5375‬: Infatti era molto carino,mi dispiacerebbe lasciare un fb negativo,so che non è l'ideale. Le propongo se x lei non è un problema la restituzione di metà dell'importo fuori catawiki,in modo da lasciarle anche un fb positivo. Aprendo un reclamo la cosa andrebbe x le lunghe.
    Mia risposta:
    22/07/17, 16:19:24: Pasquale: La ringrazio per me non essendo colpa mia bensì di quei maledetti e poco seri corrieri non posso gestire fuori catawiki i claim dei clienti. Se per lei ritiene che sia stato negligente non esiti a lasciarmi un giudizio negativo. Sono dispiaciuto quanto o più di lei dell'accaduto. Buon week end

    QUESTA E' LA CORRISPONDENZA CON L'ACQUIRENTE E NON POSSO CHE DIRE CHE TRATTASI DI UNA PERSONA POCO LEALE E SCORRETTA.

    Non sono per niente d'accordo con quanto scritto dal compratore. Il dipinto in questione è stato inviato in perfette condizioni come dimostrano le foto allegate e di cui da sempre mi assumo piena responsabilità. Il danneggiamento probabilmente è dovuto alla movimentazione dello stesso. Il dipinto comunque è stato rimborsato da catawiki mentre io non ho ancora ricevuto il reso, anzi si dice sia stato perso.
