More About this Item


Description: Scultura in bronzo brunito raffigurante Spartaco. Rara e preziosa scultura in bronzo in bronzo a cera persa. Lo Spartaco è senza dubbio l'opera giovanile più nota di Vincenzo Vela, il marmo, fu premiato a Parigi nel 1855. Dal 1937 appartiene alla città di Lugano per lascito dalla Fondazione Goettfried Keller. L'eroico schiavo ribelle che capeggiò la rivolta contro il potere di Roma è una figura forte, pura, schierata dalla parte del popolo. Realizzato proprio negli anni "caldi" intorno al 1848, lo Spartaco di Vela è stato subito salutato come il simbolo della lotta di liberazione dei patrioti lombardi durante il dominio austriaco. Altezza cm. 65 | This beautiful bronze sculpture of Spartacus is undoubtedly the best-known early work by Vincenzo Vela, and was awarded in Paris in 1855.
