Vincenzo Gemito had already sculpted one of his most famous pieces by the time he was 16 years old. Adopted by an artisan and enrolled into the Naples Academy of Fine Arts by the time he was 12, Gemito was destined to use his hands to create great things.
For the first time in France, Gemito's works – from portraits of celebrities of the time to masterful sculptures that caught the spirit of his native Naples – are getting a deserved display.
Known for the prolific speed at which he worked in during the late 17th century, Luca Giordano painted frescoes in Florence (notably for the Medici family) and religious scenes for King Charles II of Spain.
Giordano's Baroque style was an amalgamation of his time studying in Venice and Rome. His pieces would prove to be influential throughout the 18th century and served as a precursor to the later Rococo movement. For the first time, the Petit Palais is presenting a retrospective of Giordano's work on French soil.
