Tags: Sculpture, Italy, place: Tuscany

Many sculptors employed professional plaster workers or moulders to undertake specialist work in the production process. It was very much an Italian profession. Plaster cast figure maker Luigi [Louis] Brugiotti was born around 1818 in Tuscany. He was listed in 1841 as working from Leather Lane. In London directories Louis Brugiotti was recorded as Bugiotti in 1846 and 1847, while in census records he can be found as Brogiotti, Baugiotti, Brugotte, and Brugiotti, described as a figure maker or plaster figure maker. He died in 1888 in London.
