Riccardo Guarneri - exhibition opening

In our often excursus on artists, who characterized post-war Italian painting, Riccardo Guarneri,a well-known exponent of Analytical Art, could not miss. The exhibition consists of about twenty works on Arches paper. The cards are all of the same size, 50x70 cm, of the same weight and grain. Paper is an ideal support for Riccardo Guarneri works because his painting is evanescent, sometimes algid, all played on the coloristic shades of colors that are already soft and light. Only the color must be seen without any underlying texture to distur...

The public was disciplined as everyone wore the mask with acceptable distance. It is hoped that we will not have to stop again because of the misbehaviour of a few. However, as we specified in the fairs section,...

Lucius Del Pezzo or the Pompeii of Art

An article, in Art of june, traces the artistic career of Lucio Del Pezzo, a well-known exponent of Italian Pop Art. On closer inspection, the combination with Pop Art is very forced and arises only from the desire to classify the genre of belonging of the artist anyway. Del Pezzo's artistic language is closer to Metaphysics than to Pop Art. In fact, it is peculiar to Pop Art the celebration of iconic objects of consumption, but in the case of Lucio Del Pezzo the objects he inserts into the works are not objects of common use, but are refere...

Mario Raciti, new acquisitions

We visited our artist and friend Mario Raciti to make new purchases of works that we will soon publish on our website. The works of Raciti that we bought are from the series "The flowers of the deep" where, from a white background with spots of color not well defined but tending to reddish, brown, yellow, emerge very thin stems with at the upper end a stain of color to symbolize a flower. In accordance with his dreamlike painting, not easily interpretable, Raciti does not unveil the flower, which everyone can imagine as he wants, but rather ...

The response to the virus

The month of May of the magazine Arte Mondadori takes its cue from the pandemic caused by the coronavirus to ask for reflections on the merits of some artists including Emilio Isgrò. In fact, Isgrò takes the cue to make a quick and ducted rundown on 20th-century art by talking not only about "visual" artists but also about those who write or recite, such as Bertolt Brecht and Carmelo Bene. He speaks of those artists who have given an important breakthrough to art capable of bringing everyday objects such as Duchamp's "urinal" or the "bicycle...

Germano Celant

The well-known curator and art critic Germano Celant died yesterday at the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan. In 1967 he noticed a group of young Italian artists exhibiting at the La Bertesca gallery in Genoa. He understood the communicative power of their language and wrote the manifesto headlined it: Poor Art. Notes for a guerrilla. The Arte Povera was born, an artistic current that soon gained worldwide notoriety. For Celant he was the national and international springboard for his work as a critic and curator of important exhibitions. These...
