Amadee Generalli; Sculptor

Fl 1913-late 1930’s

Born in Naples in 1891. He did not go to an Art School but studied under Francesco Lerace in Naples. He moved to France and made his debut with his first exhibition in the Salon des Beaux Arts in Paris in 1913.

He produced many bronzes and terracotta’s some of which were retailed through Alfred Dunhill 15 Rue de la Paix Paris. Dunhill also had branches in London and New York. Many of Genneralli’s terracotta’s were made using the lost wax method and limited to only 10 copies of each. He generated a large volume of outdoor statuary in Marble – including funerary monuments- as well as figures and groups in bronze and bronze and ivory all executed in his vibrant Art Deco style. Variation to his works was provided by a range of patinated finishes he applied to his works including verdigris, silver and gold

His work is highly collectible today and admired for the quality of workmanship.
