Enzo Plazzotta (1921-1981)

During the 1960s, Enzo Plazzotta established himself in London as a leading sculptor. He produced both accessible, popular pieces and more personal expressions in which he overcame conceptual and technical problems. Favourite preoccupations included horses, adaptations of classical and Christian themes and, as here, dancers.

Enzo Plazzotta was born in Mestre, near Venice on 29 May 1921, and grew up on the shores of Lake Maggiore. Developing a particular aptitude for sculpture, he began to study under Messina at the Accademia di Brera, in Milan, at the age of seventeen. However, he had to terminate his studies abruptly when Italy entered the Second World War.
