“L’esordio milanese di Medardo Rosso,” Bolletino dell’Accademia degli Euteleti (December 1998), vol. 65, pp. 185-201.
Hecker’s essay presents her discovery of Medardo Rosso’s hitherto unknown first exhibition at the Indisposizione di Belle Arti in Milan (1881) and his equally unknown first work presented there under the title L’Allucinato. The essay elaborates a new view of Rosso’s early interests in French Realism and gives names of local Milanese contacts whose importance in Rosso’s life has yet to be explored.
