From 27 November to 14 February 2016, the exhibition – staged with the extraordinary collaboration of Musées d’Orsay and the Orangerie in Paris – is devoted to the research the artist from Milan conducted into the plastic and material quality of sculpture, illustrated through 55 works in plaster, marble and bronze, accompanied by a series of original drawings and a number of works for comparison: the Vestale by Antonio Canova, as well as works by Fausto Melotti, Lucio Fontana and Arrigo Minerbi.
The exhibition seeks to be the pivotal element in a wider historical and artistic programme engaging the city of Milan, designed to draw attention to all the traces of Wildt’s work still evident, with a specific itinerary throughout the city featuring guided visits organised in collaboration with Touring Club Italiano and opportunities to learn more organised in cooperation with FAI, the Italian National Trust.
