Oil on plywood. Signed lower right. Complete with authentication on photo of the daughter. The work is part of Salvatore Fiume's series of paintings known as City of Statues and Islands of Statues, in which the influence of Italian Renaissance painting is evident, as well as that of the metaphysical works of Italian masters such as Giorgio de Chirico, Alberto Savinio and Carlo Carrà. Cities and Islands are made up of architectural elements in humanoid forms, which bring together painting, sculpture and architecture. Salvatore Fiume was a multifaceted artist, painter, sculptor, architect, writer (he published novels, short stories, tragedies, comedies and poems) and set designer (he collaborated with the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, with Covent Garden in London and with the Teatro Massimo of Palermo). After training at the Royal Art Institute of the Book of Urbino, he moved to Milan where he forged relationships with important intellectuals of the time, including Quasimodo and Buzzati. He began his activity as Art Director in Ivrea, but soon moved to Canzo to devote himself full time to painting, his true passion, while also engaging in some experiments in the sculptural and architectural fields. On the occasion of its first exhibition, in 1949 at the Borromini Gallery, it achieved great success with the public and critics. Fiume traveled extensively and exhibited all over the world, assimilating the uses, customs, cultures and atmospheres of each place where he stayed and re-proposing them in his works. In 1993 he went to Polynesia to visit and be influenced by the places where the famous Paul Gauguin lived and created great masterpieces. Salvatore Fiume's mature works are strongly influenced by Gauguin's art and exotic atmospheres: warm tones, strong chromatic contrasts, simple shapes, fantastic themes and almost metaphysical settings. The protagonists of this creative period are often curvy and sensual Mediterranean and oriental women. Today Salvatore Fiume's works are preserved in important private collections and Italian and foreign museums, including the Vatican Museums, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, the MoMA in New York, the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. The work is framed.

La pittura è l'arte che consiste nell'applicare dei pigmenti a un supporto come la carta, la tela, la seta, la ceramica, il legno, il vetro o un muro. Essendo i pigmenti essenzialmente solidi, è necessario utilizzare un legante, che li porti a uno stadio liquido, più fluido o più denso, e un collante, che permetta l'adesione duratura al supporto. Chi dipinge è detto pittore o pittrice. Il risultato è un'immagine che, a seconda delle intenzioni dell'autore, esprime la sua percezione del mondo o una libera associazione di forme o un qualsiasi altro significato, a seconda della sua creatività, del suo gusto estetico e di quello della società di cui fa parte.
