an angel of maestro Mitoraj in front of the famous Pisa Tower

an angel of maestro Mitoraj in front of the famous Pisa leaning tower

Yesterday evening opened the last exhibition of Igor Mitoraj’s sculptures and paintings. This time the place is really suggestive: Pisa miracle square, just in front of the famous leaning tower. the exhibition is dedicated to the figure of the angels and is formed by drawings , paintings, plasters, bronzes and iron sculptures.

We collaborate with Igor Mitoraj for 30 years and  speaking , as usual, in a technical way, what is interesting for me is the use of the finishing and patinas . it can happen that a Mitoraj’s patina requests several weeks to be ready. Maestro comes to us several times always saying what to add or erase : sometime a layer of patina, sometime some lampblack, sometime he simply say to wait for the next rain to wash the sculpture. the result is always technically interesting and aesthetically perfect.

i cannot judge artistically the work of maestro Mitoraj, but if you pass from Pisa and have some time i suggest you to go see the exhibition , it will not be lost time.
