Bianca No. 2
Size… 8″H on 2.75″H base
The sculpture has been maintained in perfect condition,
but for glue from the way it was affixed to a shelf (images shown)
This Oronzio Maldarelli sculpture is highly rare and sought after…
Great conversation piece!
– RARE –
Thought to be the Study for the larger Bianca No. 2 that resides in the
Smithsonian Art Museum, Hirshhorn Museum, Virginia Art Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, Metropolitan Museum of Art,
among numerous other fine Museums and Institutions.
Owned by Dr. James F. Hammill, MD – Professor of Clinical Neurology

It is thought that Dr. Hammill acquired this sculpture when both he and Oronzio Maldarelli were contemporaries at Columbia.
