Italian sculptor Leoncillo Leonardi was the son of the poet Fernando Leonardi. Leoncillo studied in Perugia and Roma, and during World War II joined the Italian partisans. He worked mostly with terracotta. In a first period in Roma (1935-39), his creations were typically large polychrome ceramics, often with an expressionistic figurative intent. Leonardi produced several ceramics charting the passage from his neo-Cubist period of the late 1940s to his participation in Italy’s explosion of Arte Informale, which was to have considerable influence in Europe and America.
