Sculpture Exhibitions at The Sladmore Gallery & Sladmore Contemporary

Rembrandt Bugatti – emotions in bronze, until 8th November at The Sladmore Gallery, 57 Jermyn Street, St James’s

The Sladmore Gallery is well known for showing bronzes by Rembrandt Bugatti ( his younger brother Ettore was the car designer) and this new loan exhibition concentrates on pairings and family groups of the creatures he so loved studying, including many at the Antwerp Zoological Gardens or the Jardin des Plantes in Paris.

It is a very fine exhibition which clearly displays the skill and the empathy he had for the subjects he depicted so well.

This is an exciting departure for the gallery which has been selling bronzes for almost fifty years as this is the first time they have exhibited carved marble and stone sculptures alone.  When you see these unique works you will totally understand why.
