It is a tribute to the great Polish entrepreneur, founder of the homonymous cosmetic house Helena Rubinstein, made in the year of her death. Giorgio Bellandi, born in Milan in 1931, was a very talented set painter. Passionate about art from a very young age, he attended the Brera Academy and became an active part of the Milanese artistic environment of those years. Bellandi worked as a set designer at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan and made his debut as a painter in the 1950s by joining the existential realism, a very active artistic movement in Milan in the second half of the 1950s, becoming one of the exponents of this current. Existential Realism was originally based on the search for something different, an alternative both to informal painting and to the effects of existentialism, especially political, which had taken hold due to the damage caused by World War II.

Age: Contemporary

It is difficult to define what Contemporary Art is, because it does not correspond to a time period or to a unique and specific artistic current. According to the subdivision of art into historical periods, the period of Contemporary Art would begin in 1789, at the end of Modern Art, and with the introduction to that century, the nineteenth, which sees the appearance of a new and revolutionary, Photography, and that begins to search for a different way of looking at reality and representing it, in particular with Impressionism, which chooses to mediate the vision of reality with the filter of feelings that it evokes. On the other hand, the whole twentieth century is permeated by the rise of numerous pictorial currents, which try to interpret the demands of the present using new means of production and adapting to the times and ways of life and which filter reality through feelings, intimist visions. , metaphysical interpretations, generating different multiple pictorial currents. Therefore, many believe that contemporary art is that mode of artistic expression that tends to involve new means of expression that range from performance, photography, installation, video, digital processing, to text, thus starting from some currents. avant-garde of the twentieth century and reaching up to the present day. But be careful: to date, in any century, a wide representation of artists has never disappeared in artistic pictorial production who have chosen to remain faithful to the most traditional pictorial technique, as well as to the representation of reality in the most consistent and objective way possible, which therefore can be considered Contemporary only in a more temporal sense, that is because they lived in the last decades of the current historical period.

Artistic technique: Pittura

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.
