Best known for his sculpture at Rockefeller Center, Lentelli exhibited this panel at the New York City Council for Art Week in 1940 ( the original submission label survives on the reverse). The bather subject here is a variation of the freestanding “Bagnante” sculpted by Lentelli and celebrated in a publication issued by Brookgreen Gardens in 1937. Lentelli was born in Bologna and trained in Rome, before immigrating to America at the age of 24. He achieved fame for his work on the reredos at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York and his public sculpture for the Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco in 1915. Lentelli sculpted panels and bas-reliefs for many distinguished buildings, including the Steinway Building in New York.
