    Giacomo Manzú : Giacomo Manzú (1908 – 1991) was an Italian-born sculptor whose works can be seen around the world, from the Getty to the Vatican. Inspired by classical sculpture and, in the latter part of his career, the Impressionists, the artist explored the subjects of religious iconography, life-size nudes and genre scenes. Though best known for his bronze sculpture work, Manzú also explored a range of other medium including marble and two-dimensional drawings. His best known works include the Door of Death at St. Peter’s Basilica and Christ of Our Humanity, a series of reliefs that paralleled the Crucifixion and Deposition of Christ to his opposition to Fascism during World War II.
