Anthony Quinn (Mexico/United States, 1915-2001) blue marble figural sculpture depicting a stylized male torso. Etched signature lower left front corner "AP A. Quinn". Mounted onto a black onyx base. Sculpture measures 13 1/2" H x 13 1/2" W. 18 1/2" total H.  Biography: Anthony Quinn, best known to many as an Oscar winning actor, was also a professional artist. He was born in Chihuahua, Mexico and his family moved to Los Angeles when he was a child. At age nine he began sculpting and at age 12, entered a California statewide competition, which he won with a plaster bust of Abraham Lincoln. Another art competition prize in his late teens earned Quinn the opportunity to study with Frank Lloyd Wright. Although his career as an actor propelled him to national recognition, Quinn continued to draw, paint and sculpt, often between takes while working on various films. He occasionally exhibited his sculpture in galleries, including a one-man sell-out exhibit at a gallery in Honolulu, and sold works to celebrity friends.
