Vincenzo Gemito
(1852 -1929)

Vincenzo Gemito (1852 -1929) was an Italian sculptor and artist.

Although he worked in various studios of well-known artists in his native Naples, Rome and Paris, he is considered to have largely been self-taught, the reason he produced such distinctive works for that time, replacing sentiment with outstanding realism.
