The sculpture section contains works by Giulio Branca, Paolo Troubetzkoy, and Arturo Martini.
The museum has 22 sculptures by Giulio Branca, born in Cannobio (1850-1926), most of which were left by his heirs. Having begun his career with a Neoclassical style, Giulio Branca moved in a Romantic direction without ever losing sight of Verism.
The whole ground floor has been set aside for the work of Paolo Troubetzkoy (1866-1938), born in Intra, on Lake Maggiore, son of a Russian man and American woman. As the artist requested, his heirs donated all his plaster casts, made in his Verbania’s home and his studio in Neuilly Sur Seine in France, to the Museo del Paesaggio.
The museum contains 53 works by Arturo Martini (1889-1947) including terracotta, nine plaster sculptures, seven paintings, and four medals. His busy artistic life, with its wealth of exhibitions and continual creations, made him one of the most important sculptures of the 20th century in Italy. Thanks to his companion Egle Rosmini, born in Selasca near Lake Maggiore, Museo del Paesaggio obtained Martini’s sculptures, paintings, and documentary material in 1979-80.
