If you are not familiar with this incredible artist,let me enlighten you some.Domenico Mastroianni ( 1876- 1962)was a natural genius of clay molding in the Art Nouveau style. Domenico would rapidly sculpt amazingly detailed scenes in no time.photograph them,then destroy them and use the clay for another piece. I personally love his talent and eye for playing with light and distance.His given name for this technique was, sculptochrome ,photo sculptures or sculptograuves. His main genres included,historical events,literary ,religious romance and holidays . This rare old RPPC postcard shows Domenico in his shop with his family. I love the large sculptors in the background. Trying to find photos of this well loved master is nearly impossible.I plan on bringing you many of hie works in all genres .
