Engraving, monotype. Bottom in pencil, on the right the signature, on the left the title. The Venetian artist Tullio Silvestri constantly expressed in his production the modules of late nineteenth-century lagoon painting, with its symbolist implications, characterized by a loose and rapid sign, in "direct action". He created many monotypes, of which he was a skilled performer. He loved depicting moments of the country's life, facts and popular figures; he painted processions, glimpses, tavern figures, buskers, portrayed ironers, peasant women, lacemakers, card players and, as in the monotype proposed here, women in prayer. The work is presented in a frame.

Additional Information

Artist: Tullio Silvestri (1880-1963)

Age: XX Century - from 1901 to 2000

The twentieth century is characterized by the prevalence of the bourgeoisie over the working class and by the discovery that life continues to be a struggle for survival and to improve its quality. Technological progress, instead of favoring this development, becomes an instrument of mechanization and drying up of man, who needs to look for a "soul supplement" and new forms to express it. Therefore, a whole series of artistic currents are born that create works expressing the interiority of man, which evoke reality from within rather than represent it, and depict it using, freely, shapes and colors. We therefore have Decadentism with Art Nouveau, Matisse and Braque's Fauvism, Picasso's Cubism, then Expressionism with Munch, Kandinskij's Abstractionism and Metaphysical painting by Carrà and De Chirico. There are numerous currents and groups of artists and intellectuals who use Art as a Manifesto of their thought, often also with a political connotation.
