Giacomo Manzu Until 3 Jan. At home. near Rome the sculptor Giacomo Manzu lives at the top of the hill, revered by both art world and public in his eightieth year. Though honorary member of the Scottish Academy. Manzu is not well-known in this country. the last review of his work taking place at the Tate Gallery over 20 years ago. Bronze portraits of young girls and cardinals, religious drawings. costume designs for opera and gold jewellery make up this new retrospective exhibition of his work. With some exceptions Manzu‘s work has an aura of living spirituality- down-to-earth and yet transformed. Describing himself as craftsman rather than artist. it is ironically his dedication to his craft which places him in the latter catagory. Bronze Tebe is speckled and a basket of fruit ripe with gold. A Knight from Tristan and Isolde is padded in silk like an astronaut — Manzu has a way of locating the past in the present.

The Terrible Year- 1937 The title of a poignant woodcarving by Ernst Barlach is on loan to the gallery while funds are sought to purchase it. A small display around the sculpture commemorates one
of Hitler‘s attacks on modern art, the Degenerate/1r: exhibition of 1937. Both this and the Nash display make the gallery well worth a winter visit.
