Emile Gilioli was a French-Italian sculptor and significant representative of the abstract French sculpture in the 1950s. In 1929, while working as a blacksmith, Gilioli began taking evening classes at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Nice, studying under the sculptor Chiavacci. Later, in 1931, he enrolled at the Ecole of des Beaux-Arts, where he was a student of Jean Bouche. Gilioli’s work is characterized by fluid lines, abstract forms, and a harmonious blend of tradition and modernity. His creations were deeply influenced by Archaic Greece, Ancient Egyptian statuary and Cubism. He often depicted the human figure in a stylized manner, capturing the essence of movement and emotion with remarkable grace. Gilioli worked with various materials, including marble, metal, painted iron, and polished bronze. The remarkable thoroughness of his works showcases his inner craftmanship.
