Little bronzes (1959-1985)

The works shown here were included in the choices made by the artist himself for the retrospective exhibition at Palazzo Te in Mantua in 1987, and are presented based on the same criteria used for the installation. The exhibition took place a few weeks after the sudden death of the artist.
