World Renowned Sculptress To Visit St. Mary’s A world renowned sculptress comes to St. Alary’s on Alonday, April 11, to demonstrate her pro digious talents before the student body at 8:30 P.M. Fiore de Henriquez is her name and she practices her art on a grand scale indeed! A woman of astound ing artistic energy, she has modeled more than 3000 people, many of them of international imjtortance, in the past 8 years! The names of those who have sat for the indefatigable Aliss de Henriquez read a Who’s Who of celebrities — Sir Laurence Olivier, Dame Sybil Thorndyke, Igor Strav insky, Augustus John, Noel Cow ard, Peter Ustinov, the Duke of Bedford, AAvien Leigh, Alargot Fonteyn and manv’ others of simi lar fame. Fiore, who virtually commutes each year between America and the Continent, was born in Trieste of a Spanish father and a mother born in Central Europe. Her father was the last of a great Spanish family that traced its descent from the first king of Portugal and num bered among its ancestors the sec ond wife of Christopher Columbus. Fiore first came to America about five years ago under the patronage of Huntington Hartford, who com missioned her to design a museum for him to be built on his jiroperty in Hollywood. Air. Hartford tofd her that it was his ambition to have this building created by a sculpture, just as in the old times Alichelangelo was asked to build the cupola of St. Peter’s in Rome.

In the meantime, ex hibitions of her work have been held in many of the art centers of the world, including Rome, Naples, Alilan, Venice, London, New A’ork and other American cities.
