Petit Palais museum hosts an exhibition of the sculptor Vincenzo Gemito from October 15, 2019 to January 26, 2020. Vincenzo Gemito was one of the strongest personalities in Italian art in the late nineteenth century. Both a sculptor and a draftsman of celebrity portraits and scenes of the everyday life of local people, Gemito was very attached to Naples, his native city. From his triumph at the Paris World's Fair in 1878 to his combat with the mental illness that tormented him, this exhibition—the first in France—retraces the pathway of this artist with an inimitable style blending virtuosity and realism. More than 120 works will be exihit at Petit Palais with the exceptional collaboration of the Capodimonte Museum in Naples. This exhibition invites visitors to follow the different stages of this amazing destiny.
Open Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm
Nocturne on friday until 9 pm
Address: Winston Churchill Avenue 75008
