With great sadness, we note the passing of Ronadró on March 5, 2012, in Austin, Texas. While we are grieving this profound loss, we also know he would want you, his collectors and friends, to know how much you meant to him.
In fact, he cherished you. By becoming a collector, you invited him into your homes and offices, and into museums and universities. You made him feel welcome at conventions and treasured as a friend. He was very proud that his bronze and porcelain sculptures had found their places with more than 7,000 collectors in 73 countries—something he couldn’t have done without you. He was the artist, but you were his inspiration for 26 years.
Ronadro’s goal was to combine his business experience and artistic talent to explore and express the world of medicine and dentistry through the Ronadró Collection—not only for those —in the profession, but for anyone who viewed his work. It was a huge vision, to say the least, but one that he achieved.
There is only one Ronadró, but thousands can say they know the exuberance, joy, passion and perfection that he brought to every work of art. We will keep his legacy alive by continuing to display Ronadró’s work at the many medical and dental conventions. Ronadró’s wife, Diane, will showcase his limited editions that are available for purchase. Through Ronadró’s work, his spirit lives on. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your friendship over the years, and for the memories that we will treasure forever.
