Oil on hardboard. Signed and dated lower left. Painter, sculptor and architect, Carlo Bonomi, after training at the Brera Academy, opened a studio in Milan together with Carlo Carrà, Giannino Castiglioni and Barilli. His painting is characterized by bright colors - yellow, red and burnt - spread with material substance, as if he sensed a third dimension in painting. He has created works of monumental size, full of figures, seen in their everyday life: humble and industrious people, with deep religious and human motivations. He has never forgotten, on the contrary, he has rather exalted his popular extraction. In this work the artist proposes a half-length Christ, his eyes closed, his arms forming a whole with the pole of the cross, in continuity with it also in the color, while the background of an intense blue, although also 'it mottled with brown, creates a strong contrast. In frame.

Additional Information

Artist: Carlo Bonomi (1880-1961)

Born in Turbigo, after having studied at the Brera Academy in Milan, Carlo Bonomi here opened a studio together with Carlo Carrà, Giannino Castiglioni and Barilli. Comp ^ study trips to Munich and Rome. Volunteer party for the First World War, Bonomi knew the drama of the soldiers, sent to the massacre and the inhuman conditions of life in the trenches, developing his own personal revolt against the uselessness of those massacres. After the end of the war he was attracted to plastic works and, neglecting painting, he began to sculpt. He exhibited in numerous Italian reviews, achieving success with the public and critics; some of his bronzes were destined for the Monumental Cemetery in Milan. Finally, he also discovered himself as an architect, building a house on the hill of Turbigo, in which, on his death in 1961, his son's museum-plaster collection was set up.

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.
