Biography :
Affortunato Gory was an active Italian sculptor from 1895 to 1925, the year he died in Paris. Originally from Florence, he studied sculpture at the Academy, under the direction of Auguste Rivalta. Gory, like many Italian artists, emigrated to Paris in the early twentieth century to practice his art.
He changed his name from Fortunato Gori to Affortunato Gory and began exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Français in 1902 with a female bust executed in bronze and marble. He presented his works there until 1923.
Gory's success was due to his graceful female sculptures and the combined use of bronze and marble materials, alabaster and ivory.
