Description: Giovanni Dupre, with Lorenzo Bartolini, is among the most interesting and successful sculptors of the Tuscan school in the 19th century. The Grand Duchess Maria Nikoljewna, Duchess of Leuchtenberg, very early acquired two of the scupltor's works, today in the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. One os his major achievements is the 1873 monument for Camillo Cavour in Torino, consisting of the main figure and an assembly of additional figural sculptures on the pedestal. As early as the 1860's, Dupre created the so-called "Putti dell'uva" (children with grapes) that may be viewed as predecessors of the young Dionysos boy. In Fiesole near Florence his artistic estate is installed in its own musuem. In addition, Dupre left memoirs that generated great interest among artists and critics, the "Pensieri sull' arte e ricordi autobiografiche", published in Florence in 1884.
