“Ragazza Con Scodella” (Girl With Bowl) by Felice Casorati (1883 -1963) recreated in mosaic by Maestro Igor Marziali Felice Casorati was a renowned Italian painter, sculptor and printmaker. Throughout his career he exhibited widely and won many awards, including the First Prize at the Venice Biennale of 1938. He is most noted for his figurative compositions, portraits and still life paintings, which are often distinguished by unusual perspectives. Most of Casorati's important works are in Italian collections, public and private, including the Modern Art Revoltella Musuem in Trieste, and Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, Rome. Maestro Igor Marziali’s interpretation is both stunning and compelling. The Maestro has captured Casorati’s sense of perspective by deliberately angulating and manipulating the size of the tesserae, as well as emphasizing the andamento (flow of the tesserae). Through these skillful techniques, Marziali has created a real sense of perspective, shadow and depth. His use of Venetian glass and ecological smalti accentuate the girl, the multiple corners and layers, as well as the lights and shadows in the foreground. This captivating mosaic artwork would make a spectacular addition to any home or office.
