Bruno Zac (1906-1985) was an Italian-Australian sculptor who is best known for his works in bronze and stone. He was born in Venice and trained as a sculptor in Italy before emigrating to Australia in the 1930s.
Settling in Tasmania, where he established a studio, Zac began producing sculptures that reflected his interest in the human form and the natural world. He was particularly interested in capturing movement and energy in his works, and his sculptures often featured fluid, organic forms that seemed to be in motion.
