AMADEO GENNARELLI SCULPTURES FOR SALE & BIOGRAPHY
Italian, early 20th Century
Amadeo Gennarelli was born in Naples, and while he was initially a pupil of Francesco Jerace (1853–1937), he emigrated to Paris in 1913. Until about 1930, Gennarelli exhibited regularly at Paris salons with the Société des Artistes Français. He is best known for his art deco sculptures in bronze, terra cotta, and wood, though he also worked in decorative arts. His work was most centrally focused on allegorical subjects, figures, mythological figures, female nudes, and urban landscapes.
