Biography

"Andrea Lucchesi, the son of an Italian sculptor, was born in London and attended the West London School of Art before beginning at the Royal Academy Schools in 1886. Andrea Lucchesi, together with his peers, such as William Reynolds-Stephens, Henry C. Fehr, William Goscombe John and their influential teacher, Alfred Gilbert, formed part of a new movement which fought to free itself from the rigidly academic conventions of the mid-nineteenth century, and began to produce a new, Iyrical kind of sculpture that made use of Symbolist imagery." [Peintres de l'Ame,]
