The Italian-born sculptor, Enzo Plazzotta (1921-1981), gained a major international reputation. Though he retained close links to his native country, it was in London that he established his sculptural practice in the 1960s, and was first celebrated. Then, throughout his career, he exhibited widely in Europe, the United States and Australia. He produced inventive and engaging compositions in marble and bronze, especially of human and animal figures in movement. He developed a particular rapport with dancers, and worked with some of the most celebrated performers of his day. His output encompasses both personal expressions of his sensibility and highly accessible, popular works, many of which grace our public spaces.
