Sacred and Profane
25 September – 22 December 2013
Emilio Greco (1913-1995) is best known for his distinctive portrait busts and sensual nudes, strongly influenced by Etruscan, Greek and Roman art. However, like his contemporaries Marino Marini and Giacomo Manzù, he also received a number of important religious commissions. Marking the centenary of the artist’s birth, this exhibition includes sculptures in bronze and terracotta as well as a number of the artist’s elegant drawings and etchings, characterised by their sweeping, sinuous lines, alongside studies for the monumental religious commissions.
