An occasional dose of culture, A G Rizzoli

Achilles Rizzoli (1896- 1981) like many outsiders only became known after his death. Awkward with people, introverted and shy, he kept to himself. He worked in an architectural office where his talent went completely unnoticed.

He didn't think he had enough talent to do figurative work, he used buildings to depict people. For example Shirley's Temple was dedicated to Shirley, a little girl who lived next door on whom he became fixated after she'd shown him a small act of kindness. His works are noble, dignifies and utterly beautiful.
