Amadeo Gennarelli
Amedeo Gennarelli - Unique Art Deco Marble Sculpture




Amedeo Gennarelli - Unique Art Deco Marble Sculpture Woman Signed Dimensions: 70 x 17.5 x 9 cm Circa 1920 Amedeo Gennarelli (1881-1943) was a famous Italian Art-déco-sculptor. He is known for his nude female figures. Gennarelli was born in 1881 in Naples, Italy. In 1909 he immigrated to France, where he met with the great sculptors and artists of the period. In 1913 he exhibited its beautiful Marble Female Nude at the "Salon des Artistes Francais", where he exhibited regularly until 1936. Paris was the ideal starting point to pay attention to the avant-garde. A lot of painters, sculptors and graphic artists visited the city at the river Seine to take part in the development of the new arts. Amedeo increasingly dedicated himself to the Art déco and already exhibited his first works in the Salon of the Société des Artistes Français in 1913. The Société was a professional association of French painters and sculptors and was founded in 1881 in Paris, presenting still today the works of its artist in an annual Salon. When the first president of the association, the painter William-Adolphe Bouguereau, suggested in 1890 to dedicate the Salon young and unknown artists, a disagreement with the established artists, such as Auguste Rodin and Pierre Puvis de Chavannes started. The older ones founded their own Salon, exhibiting their own works. The aesthetic sculptures of Amedeo are designed in the style of Art deco. The distinguished marks of this epoch that arose at the beginning of the 20th century are varied and multi-form, because they were influenced by many different artistic trends. But especially geometric forms, pithy and extensive ornaments and floral motifs were used. He made these themes into erotic and athletic sculptures, as we can see for example at the sculptures The Carrier Pigeon and Towards Destiny. The Italian-French artist died in 1943 at the age of 62.
