Apollo

Gemito

Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte, Naples

10 Sep - 15 Nov 2020

Vincenzo Gemito (1852–1929) was a superstar by the age of 25, but the Neapolitan sculptor’s later life was marred by psychological crises. This exhibition of 150 works – co-organised with the Petit Palais, where it was staged last year – reveals Gemito’s virtuosic realism, and the importance of love and madness in his thought. Find out more from the Capodimonte’s website.
