Adolfo Wildt – The Last Symbolist

The Galleria d’Arte Moderna pays tribute to the greatest Milanese sculptor Adolfo Wildt (1868-1931) with the exhibition Adolfo Wildt The Last Symbolist that was organized by Musées d’Orsay and l’Orangerie in Paris.

The exhibition shows Wildt’s unique style that combines strong expressionism with the ancient and Renaissance art, while still seeing the strong influence by the Secession and by Art Nouveau. Observers characterize his work by the complex symbolism and the extreme smoothness of the sculptures giving a look of absolute purity.

This exhibition displays 55 works in plaster, marble and bronze by a series of original drawings. The visitor can compare the works by Wildt with those of other artists, like Vestale by Antonio Canova and works by his pupils Fausto Melotti and Lucio Fontana.
