Description
In the busts of Agne and Marianna Tsami, Apartis simplifies by abstracting the loquacity of detail and focusing on the personality of the person portrayed. As he himself wrote: "Naturalism accepted everything by the bucketfull ... realism picks out what belongs to sculpture and in building, chooses the essential features ... the essence which makes the work what it is and not just anything".
