Madame X

Medardo Rosso, Madame X, 1896, Wax on plaster base, Donated by Etha Fles - Medardo Rosso, 1914, Venice, Ca’ Pesaro – International Gallery of Modern Art


Donated by the artist in 1914, it is the only work that was never replicated. It demonstrates the attempt to go beyond naturalism to get closer to a pure form in which the female face appears to merge with the material, emerging only in a few features.
