BOTTEGA DI FERDINANDO VICHI (1875-1945)
Portrait of Children
Alabaster

Portraying childhood requires a perception and a consciousness of the human psyche that goes beyond the normal capacity for introspection: the physiognomic traits of a child are elusive, not yet characterized, without that 'expressiveness that time and experience affect the face of adults. It is therefore necessary to know how to make, if we speak of sculpture, those subtle traits that mark an age in itself. The refined sculpture in alabaster that portrays two children crystallizes in a moment the childlike spontaneity in the game. The child, in a playful tone, places his hands on the child's face to hide his sight, while she rebels herself trying to move her arm away with her left hand. They are caught in a moment of intimacy and daily life: their movement is stopped in a pose far from being rhetorical, but on the occasion of a customary and instinctive moment of play. The subject, the pose, the careful realization to faithfully reproduce the reality are to be framed in the precise context of the nineteenth-century sculptural culture of the workshop of Ferdinando Vichi (Florence, 1875-1945). In Ferdinando Vichi's sculpture one notices a passionate skill and a harmonizing force that dominates the forms, and which hardly ever tends to represent symbolic or exemplary occasions, but rather moments that fall into the ordinary custom. A series of comparisons with other works signed by the author turns out to be more explanatory to understand the intrinsic sentimentality that pervades his sculptures. Observe the numerous portraits of the mothers playing with the children, the two children joking on a chair, the bust with the two elders with their gaze tenderly facing each other or the two children reading the book of Pinocchio . Ferdinando Vichi was born in Florence, where he attended the Academy of Fine Arts. He became the owner of an established alabaster workshop in the second half of the nineteenth century. Photographer and sculptor, from an early age he is appreciated as a refined portrait painter, exhibiting also at the Paris Salon and working all over Europe, in the Americas and even in India. After some awards, among which grand prize and gold medal at the Expositions of Venice and Livorno, in 1907 he was awarded the title of Knight of the Kingdom. Among the most famous works performed by the Vichi, the busts of American presidents Kinley, Roosevelt and Taft will be remembered. In Italy, to remember, a bust of Marshall Cadorna and a bronze bust depicting the Duce in a Roman tunic. In his sculptures one can see the harmony in the pose itself: it always finds a balance, an essential reciprocity between the elements depicted that, by uniting, become a new unity, aesthetically inseparable.
