After more than 15 years in business Tomasso Brothers are delighted to be hosting their spectacular debut sculpture exhibtion at Adam Williams Fine Art, New York. To mark this seminal exhibition of more than 40 important works they have produced a luxurious catalogue, which aims to represent and describe the sculptures through sophisticated photographs and informative catalogue descriptions.
The content of Scultura and the accompanying catalogue is a carefully selected range of sculptural works in marble, bronze and terracotta, from the early Renaissance to the Neo-Classical period. Many of the entries epitomize the artistic tastes and cultural ideals of their time and provide us with a rich visual journey through 500 years of sculpture.
From the newly discovered powerful profile portrait of King Ferrante of Naples circa 1472 to the sublime beauty of Giambologna's 'Urania' and Bartolini's divine-like representation of the Emperor Napoleon, we can travel through the history of European sculpture and feast on Gods, Godesses, Emperors and Kings through the presentation of these enigmatic sculptures and the mythology, connoisseurship and Royal patronage that has created them.
