Anna Chromy
One of the most significant, leading figures on the most recent international sculpture scene is Anna Chromy - a lady I admire since over a decade. Despite her modesty, she has been a well-known name on the international art market for a long time and is hailed as the 'female Michelangelo'. Pope John Paul II has one, Prince Rainier of Monaco has two, the Nuremberg Insurance Corporation has three, the Karajan Foundation has four, the resort town Forte dei Marmi has five, the old town of Prague has six sculptures of Anna Chromy...
The Austrian artist and sculptress set up her atelier in Pitrasanta in Tuscany, the Mecca of all great names in sculpture such as Botero, Cesar, Niki de St. Phalle and many others. And it is here that Anna Chromy has composed a spectacular work that is unlike anything that has been done before. Inspired by Mozart's divine Requiem and - having been confronted by death on a number of occasions herself and always conscious of the transitory nature of existence - Anna Chromy realised a much sought-after dream.
Anna Chromy: It have done a life-size rendering of "Don Giovanni"!
Theatre and dance - subjects which have fascinated Anna Chromy ever since she was a child. Now, at the height of her career, she has managed to render Mozart's figures immortal in a golden setting.

Even in Anna's earlier work, death constantly emerges as a frightening empty shell - a subject by the way that plays a central role for her like the universe with its numerous facets. There is no doubt that the masterpiece in her Don Giovanni creation is the figure of death - that guest from beyond who appears at Don Giovannis' last party to give him the kiss of death. One can hardly resist an involuntary shiver when looking at the empty coat. This indefinable emotion also made a lasting impression on Prince Rainer of Monaco and his son Prince Albert who decided to have Anna Chromy's opera sculptures moved to Monaco.
Born in Bohemia, brought up in Austria, and resident in France, Anna Chromy combines the precise mind of her German father, the Slav soul of her mother, and the charm of a French woman so harmoniously that she fully deserves to be called "European". There are no bounds set to her work: it is full of imagination, imbued with visionary power.
For the 1992 World Expo in Seville, the prize-winning artist created the "men, earth, universe" painting that would later even be used as a motif for telephone cards. Naturally Anna Chromy is happy with her success, but it is of secondary importance to her. She can only find real satisfaction when she is working and creating. She is a sensitive woman with enormous visionary talent and she has the artistic skills of an Old Master. While she shows me around her atelier, I also recognise in her work strokes reminiscent of her famous teacher and artist friend Salvador Dali.

Exhibited here, in her magnificent Villa (which is at the same time seat of her 'Fondation de la Paix') are her innumerable drawings, sculptures and marvelous paintings, which are very much influenced by the magical "Phantastic Realism" - a style that became world-famous thanks to Prof. Ernst Fuchs, a friend of Anna Chromy and who later became also my friend as you can read in my "Special Feature".
Anna Chromy has dedicated herself heart and soul to art and in their beautiful manor house. Even as a young girl, Anna loved the ballet and games of charades, visions and dreams! My preferred paintings are " The four seasons"...

The sculptresses' works are dispersed over all of Germany, with a notable concentration in Bavaria, where every year a personality who has helped equestrian sports is honored with the sculpture "Equus" (the latin word for horse), considered as the "Oscar" in this field. The Trophy is awarded to somebody who has made an outstanding contribution to the sport.
Anna Chromy:
It was here, where Anna Chromy also composed her most spectacular work: the life-size rendering of "Don Giovanni" - the first opera ever done in bronze!
Characters like Europa, Alcyone, Cronus, Sisyphus, Orpheus, Eurydice, Ulysses, Hercules, the river Gods of the Earth who thanks to the imagination of Anna Chromy have undergone fiery metamorphoses and admirably manage to reflect the feelings and conflicts of the world in which we live.
Anna Chromy has achieved this through music, and her friendship with the pianist Chow Ching Ling, who is resident in Paris.
and I will forward your request to Anna Chromy personally.
