Of humble birth but extremely talented, Vincenzo Gemito was able to master the plastic art, drawing and watercolour. His contemporaries called him "the crazy sculptor" and he was considered an autodidact even though he worked in several well-known ateliers in Naples, Rome and Paris. His ability to capture scenes of everyday life and the features of characters belonging to Neapolitan culture, make him a very original artist, able to oppose with his spontaneous realism, to the sentimental attitude that permeated the society of his time.
Many exhibitions have been dedicated to him and he is definitely one of the sculptors most coveted by collectors.
Some of his works are preserved at Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano in Naples.
