  • Bernard Aubertin  (+)

    Biography : Decorating, he approaches Cubism and Futurism as a self- taught artist. In 1957 he meets Yves Klein in Montparnasse who inspires him to the creation of his famous monochrome paintings, starting the following year with his first “rouge total”. From this moment, his explorations will be focused on red, intended as fire and energy. He features the so-called Tableaux Feu (fire paintings), covering his monochrome red canvas with nails (Tableaux- Clous), wires (Tableaux Fil de Fer), matches (Parcours d’Allumettes) and other varied materials, like candles and iron nets. Through the use of red he transfers the energy of the soul on the canvas thus achieving a metaphysic understanding of painting. Spiritual existence is revealed through the art and such strength is represented by the colour. In the Sixties Aubertin introduces the element of fire into his works: a means of expression that becomes the physical representation of his red. Many of his works consist of conceptual compositions created with matches that can be lighted up creating natural variations originated by the lively motion of the flame. The creating process of the work is intrinsic in the final gesture. The spectator clearly perceives and experiences the rise of transformation. The destructive nature of fire turns into a regenerating force. In 1962 Aubertin is one of the founding members of the Zero international movement, taking part in their exhibitions and exchanging letters with Heinz Mack, Otto Piene and Piero Manzoni. He shares with them the refusal of art as a language form and the belief that art must be expressed in a simple and austere way. The red works of Aubertin promoted new energy and vibration inside the movement. In the 80’s and 90’s his artistic path evolves in performances where he sets pianos and cars on fire, whilst in recent years the red of monochromes is replaced by white, black and gold. Bernard Aubertin’s monochromy represents the pictorial silence: the work of art must n

  • Alberto Biasi  (+)

    Biography : Alberto Biasi Alberto Biasi (Padua, June 2, 1937) is an Italian painter, considered one of the masters of kinetic art Born in Padua on June 2, 1937, where he currently lives and works, he is one of the leading exponents of Italian and international kinetic art. He founded in 1959 with other artists the ENNE Group, with whom he worked until 1967, and then continued his solo business. Biasi participated as a protagonist in numerous artistic experimentation initiatives, especially in the sixties. In particular, his name is linked to the season of popularity of optical-kinetic art thanks to his artistic creations built on the basis of precise optical illusions. His paintings typically have surfaces that change appearance depending on the angle of observation, thus giving the illusion of movement. Together with Gianni Colombo and Getulio Alviani it is unanimously considered by critics as the most authoritative Italian representative of this type of art. Numerous are his collective and personal exhibitions, to point out his participation in key exhibitions in the history of kinetic art, such as "Nove Tendencije" in Zagreb and the great show "The responsive eye" at New York's MoMa. More recently, in 1988 he remembers a great anthology at the Eremitani Museum in Padua, in 1995 the retrospective "Biasi" and the ENNE Group at the Venice Biennale in 2006, the exhibition of some thirty of his historical works in the Halls of San Remo Petersburg, in 2007 the exhibition at the Diocesan Museum in Barcelona and the participation in 2008 at the International Triennial of Contemporary Art in Prague. His works include Modern Art Museum in New York, National Gallery of Rome, Museums of Belgrade, Bolzano, Bratislava, Buenos Aires, Ciudad Bolivar, Epinal, Gallarate, Guayaquil, Lodz, Ljubljana, Livorno, Middletown, Saint Louis, San Francisco, Tokyo, Turin, Ulm, Venice, Wroclaw, Zagreb and numerous foreign and Italian collections.

  • Alighiero Boetti  (+)

    Biography : Alighiero Boetti Alighiero Fabrizio Boetti known as Alighiero e Boetti (16 December 1940 – 24 February 1994) was an Italian conceptual artist, considered to be a member of the art movement Arte Povera. Background Boetti is most famous for a series of embroidered maps of the world, Mappa, created between 1971 and his death in 1994. Boetti's work was typified by his notion of 'twinning', leading him to add 'e' (and) between his names, 'stimulating a dialectic exchange between these two selves'. Life Alighiero Boetti was born in Turin, to Corrado Boetti, a lawyer, and Adelina Marchisio, a violinist. Boetti abandoned his studies at the business school of the University of Turin to work as an artist. Already in his early years, he had profound and wide-ranging theoretical interests and studied works on such diverse topics as philosophy, alchemy and esoterics. Among the preferred authors of his youth were the German writer Hermann Hesse and the Swiss-German painter and Bauhaus teacher Paul Klee. Boetti also had a continuing interest in mathematics and music. At seventeen, Boetti discovered the works of the German painter Wolf and the cut canvases of Argentine-Italian artist Lucio Fontana. Boetti's own works of his late teen years, however, are oil paintings somewhat reminiscent of the Russian painter Nicolas de Staël. At age twenty, Boetti moved to Paris to study engraving. In 1962, while in France he met art critic and writer Annemarie Sauzeau, whom he was to marry in 1964 and with whom he had two children, Matteo (1967) and Agata (1972). Working in his hometown of Turin in the early 1960s amidst a close community of artists that included Luciano Fabro, Mario Merz, Giulio Paolini, and Michelangelo Pistoletto, among others, Boetti established himself as one of the leading artists of the Arte Povera movement. From 1974 to 1976, he travelled to Guatemala, Ethiopia, Sudan. Boetti was passionate about non-western cultures, particularly of central and southern Asia, and tra

    Exhibition : Exhibitions
    Having shown in Milan and Turin, Boetti was invited by
    Harald Szeemann to participate in the seminal exhibition "Live in your Head. When Attitudes Become
    Form" in 1969. Boetti had his first US solo exhibition in New York at John Weber Gallery in 1973. In
    1978, he held an anthological exhibition curated by Jean-Christophe Ammann at the Kunsthalle Basel
    that featured historical works alongside more recent ones. He continued to show throughout Italy and
    the United States until his premature death. He was the subject of a retrospective in 1992 that traveled
    to Bonn and Münster, Germany, and Lucerne, Switzerland. He has been honored post-humously with
    several large-scale exhibitions, most notably at the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, Rome (1996);
    the Museum für Moderne Kunst in Vienna in 1997; the Museum für Moderne Kunst n Frankfurt am
    Main in 1998;Whitechapel Gallery, London (1999); and Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, Vaduz.[33] The
    artist took part in Documentas 5 (1972) and 7 (1982) and the Venice Biennale(1978, 1980, 1986, 1990,
    1995). In 2001, the Venice Pavillon was completely dedicated to Alighiero e Boetti’s work. In 2012, for
    the exhibition Game Plan, a significant number of works have been lent to the MoMA by Tornabuoni art
    Gallery.

  • Agostino Bonalumi  (+)

    Biography : Agostino Bonalumi (Vimercate, 10 luglio 1935–Desio, 18 settembre 2013) Dopo studi di impostazione tecnico-meccanica Bonalumi si inserì giovanissimo nel clima artistico diMilano, frequentando lo studio diEnrico Baj dove conobbe Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni ed Enrico Castellani. Riconoscendo la fine della spinta propulsiva dell'arte informale, collaborò alla rivista Azimuth che proponeva l'azzeramento totale dell'esperienza artistica precedente ed un nuovo inizio, basato su un nuovo patto con il progresso sociale. Tale azzeramento venne realizzato da Manzoni, Castellani e Bonalumi con l'utilizzo di tele monocrome (spesso totalmente bianche), estroflesse con varie tecniche in modo da creare effetti di luci ed ombre cangianti con l'inclinazione della sorgente luminosa. Piero Manzoni scelse come materiali prediletti il caolino e il cotone per i suoi "Achromes", mentre Enrico Castellani e Bonalumi avviarono un percorso di studio ed analisi delle possibilità fornite dall'estroflessione della tela mediante l'utilizzo di chiodi e centine (Castellani) e di sagome di legno e metallo inserite dietro la tela (Bonalumi). L'opera di Agostino Bonalumi, pur nella costante fedeltà al mezzo artistico inizialmente scelto, è considerata da molti critici estremamente fantasiosa e sempre nuova nella creazione di giochi di luci ed ombre nuovi ed originali. Particolare attenzione va segnalata sul lavoro degli anni settanta-ottanta, con ombre prospettiche contrarie alle direzioni delle normali sorgenti di luce, creando appunto un effetto disorientante, questo approccio è da spiegarsi come elemento di rottura agli standard pittorici tradizionali, di fatto se nel corso della storia dell'arte l'uomo ha sempre studiato la prospettiva per creare un effetto pittorico realistico, Bonalumi la ribalta, o la distorce creando un suo personale "punto di vista" in linea con il movimento primiano di cui faceva parte. La sua prima personale risale al 1956 presso la Galleria Totti di Milano. Nel 195

  • Alberto Burri  (+)

    Biography : Alberto Burri Alberto Burri(12 March 1915 – 13 February 1995) was an Italian painter and sculptor In one of his very rare statements, Burri claimed that the critics’ words, as well as his own, were of no use in offering a description of his artworks, affirming that its only real key strength was the formal balance that poor and industrial materials were surprisingly able to give.[3] Alberto Burri, (born March 12, 1915,Città di Castello, Italy—died Feb. 13, 1995,Nice, France), Italian artist known for his adventurous use of new materials. Considered a key figure in Post-War art and such artistic movements as Neo-Dada, Nouveau réalisme, postminimalism and Arte Povera. [1 ] [2 ] Burri was trained as a physician and began to paint only in 1944, while in a prisoner-of-war camp in Texas. About 1946 he moved to Rome and began to paint seriously. His early works—rags splashed in red paint to simulate blood-soaked bandages—grew directly out of his experiences as a doctor in the Italian army. He then began to produce works grouped into series according to the material used. The works of the earliest series (c. 1953) were made of coarse cloth stitched together. After 1956 he employed thin pieces of burned wood and layers of polyethylene in which holes were burned, creating a rich spatial network within the layers of plastic. The humble and sometimes crude materials used in these works contrast effectively with their elegant designs, and the easily destroyed materials form a perforated network over an impinging background field. In his series of meta l works done after 1959, however, the solid material completely encloses the background field, although the metal is hammered from behind as if the imprisoned field were trying to break out.

  • Giovanni Confortini  (+)

    Biography : Giovanni Confortini Born in Brescia (Italy), in 1960. Completed the high school, started working for years as a bookkeeper in Brescia's private studios and companies, but always cultivating the passion for the art of painting. The 1989 is the year when, by chance, discovered the "trompe l'oeil" through décor magazines. He is fascinated and started to test his artistic skills that better identify himself in the artistic painting. Soon the hobby turned into actual work, following the recommendations and requests of work by friends who are themselves fascinated by the growing skill and the particular creative imagination. The sensitivity for the particular elements is the basis for the work of the artist, who can see beyond its subject, this can never go unnoticed, involving the spectator in a trick, given by the hyper-reality of his works, stimulating metaphysical sensations to the more careful and curious viewer. The beauty animates the forms created by Confortini, author that manages and gives to the same value the valence that exceeds the sense that may justify the work and its meaning, to become, the work itself, the signifier, the absolute self-concept for the mere fact that is a pleasure to see. The use of color is full and elegant at the same time, the balance in the composition brings to an experience of other times, the harmony of the end result is rewarding. The technique used is mainly of acrylic on canvas or canvas panels of various sizes. Due to the predilection of light and color and a research for the Mediterranean, the artist moved From his own gallery in the center of Brescia in the most pristine islands in the south of Italy (the Pelagie) where he is following a depth "en plein air" impossible at other latitudes, consonant with his free and determined spirit that brings us to the compelling charm of painters of past centuries.

  • Giorgio de Chirico  (+)

    Detailed Description : Giorgio de Chirico Italian artist Giorgio de Chirico is best known for his enigmatic paintings of the 1910s and '20s, and for his influence on the Surrealist movement. Synopsis Giorgio de Chirico was born to Italian parents in Volos, Greece, on July 10, 1888. In his art, he sought to evoke the hidden meanings behind everyday life, and his enigmatic scenes of empty cities, menacing statues, mysterious shadows and strange combinations of everyday objects inspired the artists of the Surrealist movement in the 1910s. His important "metaphysical" works from these years include "The Enigma of an Autumn Afternoon," "The Soothsayer's Recompense" and "The Mystery and Melancholy of a Street." After a long career, de Chirico died in Rome, Italy, on November 19, 1978. Early Life and Education Giorgio de Chirico was born to Italian parents in the town of Volos, in the Thessaly region of Greece, on July 10, 1888. He first studied art at the Higher School of Fine Arts in Athens. After the death of his father in 1905, de Chirico's mother moved her three children to Munich, where de Chirico completed two years of study at the Academy of Fine Arts. After leaving the Academy he continued to educate himself, taking a particular interest in the philosophical writings of Arthur Schopenhauer and Friedrich Nietzsche. He returned to Italy in 1908, traveling to Milan and Turin and settling in Florence. Early Work As a young artist, de Chirico was inspired by the European Symbolist artists and their use of dreamlike imagery. His earliest signature works combined a Symbolist sensibility with his love of the classical antiquities of Greece and Italy and his philosophical musings on the true nature of reality. In paintings such as "Enigma of an Autumn Afternoon" (1910), de Chirico depicted dramatically lit city piazzas inhabited only by one or two figures, a statue or mysterious shadows. In 1911, de Chirico traveled to Paris, France, where his brother, Andrea (also known as Alberto Savinio), was

  • Lucio Fontana  (+)

    Biography : Lucio Fontana (Rosario, 19 February 1899-Comabbio, September 7, 1968) was a painter, ceramic artist and sculptor. Fontana was born in Rosario, Argentina, on February 19, 1899, father-in-law and mother of Argentina, and died in 1968 at Comabbio, a province in Varese. His artistic activity began in 1921 working in the sculpture workshop of Father Luigi Fontana and, his colleague and friend of his father, Molinelli Giovanni Scarabelli. He then became Adolfo Wildt's follower. Since 1949, breaking the canvas with holes and cuts, he passed the traditional distinction between painting and sculpture. The space ceased to be the object of representation according to the conventional rules of perspective. The surface of the canvas, interrupting in reliefs and recesses, came into direct relation with real space and light. At the end of the 1940s, he collaborated with Fontana Arte for the creation of ceramic bases for tables and tables (by architect Roberto Menghi), and with the firm Borsani His monochrome paintings, often spotted, bear the sign of the precise gestures, sure of the artist who, leaving the brushes, handles razor blades, knives and saws. Everything is played on the shadows with which, especially the shining light, emphasizes the solutions of continuity. He lived in Argentina for up to six years and returned to it during World War I, Fontana came to his poetry meditating on the Baroque lesson, in which, as he wrote the figures seem to abandon the plan and continue in space. Of the spatial movement he was the founder and the most well-known representative, soon established internationally. As openly provocative gestures, some of its monochrome canvases should be understood, which, such as holes and cuts, scandalized the public for ease of relocation. Numerous were the forgers, but few with a sign as sure. Fountain, to be careful, wrote on the back of each canvas phrases meaningless, simple reference to a calligraphy expertise. He was painter, sculptor, ceramic, mosa

    Biography : Piero Manzoni Piero Manzoni (Soncino, July 13, 1933 - Milan, February 6, 1963) was an Italian artist, internationally renowned for his Achrome and Artistic Shit. Piero Manzoni is the son of Egisto of the Counts Manzoni originally from Lugo (RA) and Valeria Meroni originally from Soncino. He graduated from the Faculty of Law of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan, where he finished classical studies at the Jesuits, in Liceo Leone XIII (where his schoolmates were Nanni Balestrini and Vanni Scheiwiller). His family frequented the Milanese artistic environments [1] and Lucio Fontana, founder of spacecraft, and famous for holes and cuts on the canvas. His first paintings are traditional oil paintings and portraits. In 1955 he began to paint with imprints of trivial objects (nails, scissors, tongs, etc.). In 1956 he participated in the "IV Market Fair" of the Castello Sforzesco of Soncino and published the poster for the discovery of an area of images. A short text, in which Manzoni anticipates some of the essentials of the thesis he will develop in other documents. In 1957 he exhibited, with Ettore Sordini and Angelo Verga, in a collective at the Pater gallery in Milan and published the poster For an organic painting. He is also co-affirmative of the Manifesto against Style with the Nuclear Group, with which he exhibits at the "Arte Arte Nucleare Movement" at San Fedele gallery in Milan. He begins to work on Layer Assets, with materials such as plaster and glue. In 1958 he developed the "assessment tables" and the "Achromes" (in French: colorless). The latter are canvases or other surfaces covered with raw chalk, kaolin, squares of fabric, felt, cotton fiber, plush or other materials. He exhibits at the Galleria Bergamo and holds a staff at Galleria Pater in Milan with Enrico Baj and Lucio Fontana. In 1959 he left the group of Nuclear, and ties with Agostino Bonalumi and Enrico Castellani. The latter is based on the magazine Azimuth, where are written by

  • Matteo Negri  (+)

    Biography : Matteo Negri Matteo Negri born in S. Donato Milanese (MI) nel 1982. After graduating in sculpture at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera - Milan in 2003, the artist created numerous installations for exhibitions at art galleries, public spaces and art fairs in Italy and abroad including Paris, Genoa, Brussels, Milan, Rome, Singapore, Honk Kong, Miami, London, Basel and Berlin. His artistic practice uses materials from stone to ceramic, resin and plastic, all in expressive pop colors. One series by the artist is based on a subversion of the idea of a depth-charge. Using real, decommissioned, depthcharges and mines, he explores how bright colors and unexpected settings can turn a destructive weapon into something resembling a large gemstone. Negri's submarine jewels have a hypnotic seduction and shape which makes the viewer forget the violence of their actual function. This clear split between form and meaning is also something one sees elsewhere in popular culture, where clever marketing can turn even the most ugly or boring products into curious objects of desire. A second series starts from a close inspection of the children's building material Lego. In this series, Negri uses Lego as a metaphor for children's inherent desire to build and create their own personalities. Yet the freedom and self-expression Lego appears to offer, is quickly funneled into archetypical, linear forms which are compatible with the geometry of the Lego system. In Negri's work, the system itself is subverted, and selfdetermination is given the space to play itself out. Matteo Negri currently lives and works in Milan.

  • Robert Rauschenberg  (+)

    Biography : Robert Rauschenberg Robert Rauschenberg was born Milton Ernest Rauschenberg in the small refinery town of Port Arthur, Texas. His father, Ernest, was a strict and serious man who worked for the Gulf State Utilities power company. His mother, Dora, was a devout Christian and a frugal woman. She made the family's clothes from scraps, a practice that embarrassed her son, but possibly influenced his later work with assemblages and collage. Rauschenberg drew frequently and copied images from comics, but his talent as a draughtsman went largely unappreciated, except by his younger sister Janet. Until he was 13, he planned to become a minister - a career of high standing in his conservative community. However, Rauschenberg discovered that his church called dancing a sin, and, as a skilled dancer himself, was dissuaded from a career in the ministry. He asked for and received a store-bought shirt for his high school graduation present, the very first in his young life. Early Training Following his parents' wishes, Rauschenberg attended the University of Texas in Austin to study pharmacology, but was expelled in his freshman year after refusing to dissect a frog. The draft letter that arrived in 1943 saved him from breaking the news to his parents. Refusing to kill on the battlefield, he was assigned as a medical technician in the Navy Hospital Corps and stationed at a hospital caring for combat survivors in San Diego. While on leave, he saw oil paintings in person for the first time at the Huntington Art Gallery in California. After the war ended, Rauschenberg drifted, eventually using the G.I. Bill to pay for art classes at Kansas State University in 1947. On his arrival in Kansas City, he decided he would mark his new life with a new first name: Bob. The following year, the newly anointed Robert Rauschenberg traveled to Paris to study at the Academie Julian. While in Paris, Rauschenberg met fellow American student Susan Weil, and the two became inseparable friends. He save

    Biography : Mimmo Rotella Mimmo Rotella (Catanzaro, October 7, 1918 - Milan, January 8, 2006) was an Italian artist. Born with the name of Domenico Rotella, it is considered one of the protagonists of the artistic scene of the second half of the 20th century. His figure is linked to the movement of the Nouveau Réalisme and the international Pop Art. Born in 1918 in Catanzaro by a middle-class family, after obtaining his diploma in 1940, he was called to arms in 1941. In 1943 he left the army and the following year he obtained his diploma of artistic maturity in Naples. Between 1944 and 1945 he taught design and calligraphy in Catanzaro. In 1945 he moved to Rome where he attended the young avant-garde formed by the exponents of the Forma 1 Group (Carla Accardi, Ugo Attardi, Pietro Consagra, Piero Dorazio, Mino Guerrini, Achille Perilli, Antonio Sanfilippo and Giulio Turcato). After figurative beginnings and early experiments, he began painting paintings of abstract geometry inspired by works by Vasilij Kandinskij and Piet Mondrian. In 1947 he participated in the first exhibitions in the Art Club. In 1949 he devoted himself to phonetic poetry experiments, which he calls Epistaltique [1] [2] (a neologism invented by the artist), which in the same year drafts the Manifesto . In 1950 he exhibited in Paris at the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles. 1951-1952 Mimmo Rotella at work in his studio, Rome 1951 Mimmo Rotella at work in his studio, Rome 1951 In February 1951 he participated in the exhibition "Abstract and concrete art in Italy - 1951" organized by Palma Bucarelli and Giulio Carlo Argan at the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome; the following month, he is engaged in his first staff at the Chiurazzi gallery of Via del Babuino. In 1951 he was awarded a scholarship by the Fulbright Foundation, which allowed him to travel to the United States as an Artist in Residence at the University of Kansas City. In 1952 he made his second solo at the William Rockhill Nelso

  • Paolo Scheggi  (+)

    Biography : Paolo Scheggi Born in Settignano (a fraction of the city of Florence) in 1940, he was formed at the State Art Institute and at the Academy of Fine Arts in the city. In 1960 he founded the magazine of Art and Literature The Misunderstanding. He moved to Milan in 1961, where he became part of the Milanese cultural world. His research, strongly interdisciplinary, is aimed at issues related to visual perception, the integration between real spaces and virtual spaces. His companions of experiments include, among others, Vincenzo Agnetti, Agostino Bonalumi, Enrico Castellani, Dadamaino. Scheggi revises the Spacecraft of Lucio Fontana, who in 1962 presented it to the exhibition held at Galleria Il Cancello of Bologna. Also important are exchanges and collaborations with international groups (Group Nul, Group Zero, Nove Tendencjie). In 1965 he entered the editorial office of the magazine Marcatré. Its activity alternates between the first modular elements-paintings and curved interspaces or reflex zones, utilizing monochrome for its entire search. In 1966 he was present at the XXXIII Venice Biennale where he presented four Intersuperfici curves from white, yellow, red and blue, and to the XXI Salon de Réalités Nouvelles at the Musée d'Art Moderne in Paris. Also important are the settings that lead him to collaborate with the world of fashion, theater and cinema: in them the modularity of his paintings is extended to space, for example, in the plastic interiors set up at the Galleria del Naviglio di Milan in 1967. In the same year he exhibited in Foligno in the exhibition space of the image. In the last years of his life, as well as pursuing research into a more and more programmatic work of the work (it is the period of modular plates), Scheggi joins the theatrical and performative sphere, participating in public events and doing his own experimental experiments. In 1969, he was assigned the chair of Form Psychology at the Academy of Fine Arts of L'Aquila. In 1970 he pa

    Biography : Turi Simeti Turi Simeti (Alcamo, 5 August 1929) is an Italian painter. Simeti was born in Alcamo, in the province of Trapani, on August 5, 1929; he studied Law, leaving Sicily then to settle in Rome at the end of the 1950s. In the capital the artist attended the studies of Tano Festa, Mario Schifano, Giulio Turcato, and Alberto Burri; the encounter with Burri changed his life, for by him he discovered the oval; From then on this shapely form has become the protagonist of its three-dimensional painting; it gives new visual perceptions with its monochromatic surface that changes with the variation of light. Simeti, gradual from the uniformity of the canvas, has come to the realization of works full of depth and movement. In 1963 he participated in the Art Figurative Exhibition in Rome and Lazio, at the Termoli Prize and at the Visual Arts exhibition at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, and other important international exhibitions, including Arte Programmata - Aktuel 65 and Weiss auf Weiss in Berne in 1965 in 1966. In 1965, Simeti was invited to exhibit his works in Milan (where he moved in the same year), at Zero Avantgarde, a collective exhibition hosted by Lucio Fontana's studio, where he saw reunited Italian and foreign artists including the German Zero Group, Hans Haacke, Yayoi Kusama, Agostino Bonalumi, Enrico Castellani and Dadamaino, Yves Klein and Piero Manzoni. Between 1966 and 1969, as Artist in Residence, at the invitation of Fairleigh Dickinson University, he lived for long periods in New York, where he created several works; In the early 1970s he set up personal exhibitions in Bergamo, Verona, Rottweil, Düsseldorf, Oldenburg, Cologne, Munich, and also took part in some of the collections, such as Extension, at the Casa del Mantegna in Mantua. In the Eighties, inspired by the passion for Ludovico Corrao's art, he made a very linear sculpture for Gibellina, a slab of travertine instead of the usual cloth (Impronta, stone slab of 1980), where the artist transfe

  • Claudio Verna  (+)

    Biography : Claudio Verna Claudio Verna was born in Guardiagrele, province of Chieti, in 1937. From 1942 to 1956 he studied in Umbria, then at the University of Florence, where he graduated with a thesis on "Figurative Arts in Industrial Civilization" and where he held the first major exhibitions. In 1961 he arrived in Rome. For some years he has renounced the exhibitions to experiment and define in total autonomy the thought and the tools of his own research. In 1967 he returned to exhibit, now definitively convinced of the "ancient and inalienable" reasons for painting. It is the period of the so-called "Analytical painting", aimed at a reflection on making art today and on the relationship with modern tradition. For some years he has renounced the exhibitions to experiment and define in total autonomy the thought and the tools of his own research. In 1967 he returned to exhibit, now definitively convinced of the "ancient and inalienable" reasons for painting. It is the period of the so-called Analytical Painting, aimed at a reflection on making art today and on the relationship with modern tradition. Having reached expressive maturity, Verna's painting "is articulated between the polarities of extreme rigor and intense emotional abandonment". The absolute protagonist of the paintings is color and its ability to assume the maximum values of saturation and light. After the debut at the Galleria Numero di Firenze in 1960, more than a hundred personal exhibitions have been held in Italy and abroad, including the Venice Biennale in 1970 and 1980, and the anthology in the Gibellina Museums in 1988, Spoleto in 1994, Ferrara in 1997, Conegliano in 1998, Treviso in 2000, L'Aquila in 2007 and the Mudima Foundation in Milan in 2012. At the same time he is present in numerous group exhibitions and international exhibitions in Düsseldorf, London, Philadelphia, Copenhagen, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Darmstadt, Cologne, Moscow, Leningrad, Grenoble, Nice, Prague, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Rio de

  • Rodolfo Viola  (+)

    Biography : Rodolfo Viola was born in Milano on August 8th 1937. His painting follows the trends of non-representational art of those years and he defines the aesthetic and philosophical implications of his research in the Manifesto Universalista which he co-authors with Franco Zeffirelli, Peter Maag, Carlo Mauri and Giuseppe Marotta. His works have been exhibited in the most important art galleries in Italy and around the world and are part of public and private collections. Three essays have been written about him by art critics Andre' Verdet, Silvio Ceccato and Pierre Restany. Rodolfo Viola has been conferred many prizes and recognitions: the Republic of San Marino dedicated him a series of stamps (in which he appeared as only living artist among Botticelli, Guercino, Tintoretto); his seascapes have become symbol of the America's Cup, one of his paintings was chosen for the celebration of the 6th centenary of the fabbrica del Duomo. These are only few of the events which have led Viola to become an exponent of the international artistic scene, although they never been the vehicles of his success. Rodolfo Viola is Rodolfo Viola, for pureness of intent and a unique personality demonstrated in 60 years of inspiring paintings always new and always true to his authentic trait.
