About the artist:
Ernest Tino Trova, a self-trained St. Louis native, became one of the significant artists of the late twentieth century. Trova always insisted on consistency of content in his work, along with persistency of application and personal addiction to getting work done. He considered his entire output a single “work in progress.” Trova’s gift of forty of his works led to the opening of the Laumeier Sculpture Park. As one of the most prolific and imaginative sculptors of our time, Ernest Trova continued to create many more outstanding works of art and venture into unexplored areas.
