  • About the book

The Catalogue Raisonné, promoted by the Museo Rosso, restores, thanks to a close philological discourse, the corpus of Medardo Rosso's documented works whose originality is proven by the sources: letters, writings or photographs. 

The result of decades of study by Paola Mola and archival research by Fabio Vittucci, the catalogue is also a long historical reflection that reveals the surprising topicality of a work with no limits on fluid matter as it encounters light, from the transparencies of wax to the obscurity of bronze and the subtlety of photography. Preceded by an introduction by Paola Mola, the book includes files on all the works (33) as they evolve through the series of variants, from one material to another (from bronze to plaster, wax and photography), accompanied by extensive notes and original photographs by the artist. 

This is followed by files on the approximately 90 documented examples (with a history of each piece and a list of documents attesting to its authenticity), a list of original works that have arrived without documentation and a list of posthumous fusions commissioned by his son Francesco and conserved in public collections. The volume is completed by the apparatus including biography, bibliography, list of sources and index of names. 

Paola Mola, considered the most authoritative scholar of the sculptor and a specialist in the work of Medardo Rosso, Wildt and, in Italy, Brancusi.
