The exhibition entitled “Adolfo Wildt (1868-1931), the Last Symbolist” is taking place in the Modern Art Gallery (GAM), Milan from 27 November to 14 February 2016. It includes 55 artworks made from a range of materials, showcasing the artistic output of the Milanese sculptor, Adolfo Wildt.

This event celebrates one of Milan’s famous names, suggesting a historical and artistic tour of the city which hosts the works of Wildt. Milan is full of artworks by this fine sculptor – from the park of the Villa Reale to the Monumental Cemetery and Largo Gemelli.

The relationship between light and artworks is essential to accentuate the materials used to create the items on display. Indeed, Wildt carefully researched the materials he selected and he repeated the same subject in gypsum, marble and bronze to aim for the best final result. With the right lighting, this effect is heightened and transmitted to exhibition visitors.
