The painting "Crying Child" was made by the famous artist Marco Tacconi, a leading exponent of mosaic art, with the Florentine mosaic technique. This technique, born in Roman times with the name of opus sectile, was encouraged and perfected in the Renaissance era by the Medici family. It is a very prestigious technique, both for the types of marble used and for the difficulty in making it.
He was born in Grassina on 19 June 1936. After the end of the war, he abandoned his painting career and began to learn the art of mosaic by working in the workshop of master Giuseppe Fiaschi. He then became a master himself and opened his own workshop in Grassina. Aided by his two sons who were introduced to that same passion, through traditional mosaic techniques dating back to the Renaissance, he succeeded in realising almost unimaginable works. He obtained extraordinary results, faithfully representing natural visions of particular and more difficult elements such as water, hair, skin, eyes... His extraordinary artistic story made him capable of, as his admirers often said, 'painting with stones' to the point of becoming an aesthetic, technical and historical point of reference in the field for all those who learnt and loved 'Florentine mosaics'. His mosaics can be found in numerous celebrity private collections.
