Although largely self taught, Giacomo Manzù established himself as one Italy’s foremost sculptors of religious subjects. He won his first major ecclesiastical commission in 1930, decorating the chapel of the Catholic University in Milan. Later he would go on to sculpt the monumental bronze church doors for St Peter’s Basilica in Rome. This show co-organised with Bologna’s Galleria d’Arte Maggiore not only brings together important religious works including Manzù’s ‘Cardinals’ series but also focuses on his sensitive portraits of family members and sinuous sculptures of entwined lovers.
