Additional Information

Style: Poor art

Arte Povera is an artistic movement born in the sixties of the twentieth century, following the first exhibition of "poor artists" held in Genoa in 1967.
This term was coined for two reasons:
1. The use of humble materials
2. The attempt to impoverish art to make it more accessible to the society of the time

Time: XX Century - from 1901 to 2000

Main essence: Walnuts

Walnut wood comes from the plant whose botanical name is juglans regia , probably originally from the East but very common in Europe. Light or dark brown in color, it is a hard wood with a beautiful grain, widely used in antique furniture. It was the main essence in Italy throughout the Renaissance and later had a good diffusion in Europe, especially in England, until the advent of mahogany. It was used for solid wood furniture and sometimes carvings and inlays, its only big limitation is that it suffers a lot from woodworm. In France it was widely used more than anything else in the provinces. In the second half of the eighteenth century its use decreased significantly because mahogany and other exotic woods were preferred.
