Reviewing the achievements of a prominent Italian sculptor whose oeuvre represents a singular adaptation of the Impressionist aesthetic, this catalogue features fine reproductions of some 75 works in wax, bronze and plaster produced by Rosso (1858-1928) over the course of his career in Milan and Paris while also presenting more than 150 of the artist's previously unpublished photographs of his sculptures, the expressively modeled heads and figures reflecting Rosso's interest in transitory atmospheric effects and the play of light on sculptural surfaces. An extensive selection of letters and other writings by Rosso and testimonials by such contemporary sculptors as Tony Cragg and Juan Mun(;z)oz augment three substantial essays discussing the formal and psychological concerns informing the artist's work and examining his influential role as a precursor of avant-garde trends in 20th-century sculpture.
