History: Born in Carrara, the sculptor Fernando Ciancianaini, known as Fernand Cian, worked in Paris with Léo Laporte-Blairsy (1865-1923), and was a student of Alexandre Falguière (1831-1900). He exhibited eleven times at the Salon of French Artists from 1907 to 1928, with honorable mention in 1921. He develops a production of pastiches of busts of children in the style of the eighteenth century. He signs them with his artist's name or sometimes with his own name: this is the case for a bust of the Duc de Lesdiguières, found in the Louvre Museum and a bust of a child also in the Louvre's collections. He lived in Torbole on Lake Garda for many years, where his terracotta figures still adorn the Madonna delle Vittorie church and many public squares in the area.
