A genius sculptor, today too little known, Prince Paul Troubetzkoy (1866-1938) was an animal and social artist at the same time.
Born on the shores of Lake Maggiore, to an American singer mother and a Russian prince in exile, self-taught, he met the greatest of the Belle Époque and the Roaring Twenties. Friend and portraitist of Tostoy, Rodin, D’Annunzio and Georges Bernard Shaw, he knew how to transmit in the coldness of a bronze sculpture the most living emotions and the warmth of feelings.
This work immerses the reader in the life of this tireless, atypical and brilliant globetrotter and provides the keys to understanding his work.
