Marble bas-relief. Engraved signature along the left margin. Born in Cannobbio (on Lake Maggiore), Giulio Branca was introduced to the art by the Cannobio sculptor Bergonzoli, and later attended G. Strazza's school of nude drawing and sculpture at the Brera Academy. Born in Cannobio on 13 December 1850 to Ludovico, he was introduced to art by the Cannobio sculptor Bergonzoli, and attended the school of the nude and G. Strazza's school of sculpture at the Brera Academy. He made about four hundred sculptures, including memorials, funerary monuments and portrait busts. Branca also took part, following a competition, in the completion of the high wall of the cathedral of Como, which had remained unfinished for centuries, sculpting several figures in white marble for the façade and the altar between 1897 and 1900. The work presented here is a bas-relief showing a half-bust of the grieving Madonna flanked by two pious women. It is presented in a coeval wooden frame from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century.

Technical specification: Bas-relief

The bas-relief is a method of sculpture that carves the marble, or the stone from a rocky surface or a square block. It means to contrast the floor and gives the feeling of seeing a painting in relief. The image portrayed is detected above the flat surface and background. For example, if a marble slab is thick 10 inches before starting to carve, the background, in the end, can often be 5 inches, and the embossed image will be thick up to 5 inches. In some works of sculpture, the figure may be much more prominent compared to the foreground, and in this case we speak of high relief. This technique allows you to see the image much more protruding by to see the subject without deformation to the variation of the angle of vision.
