Additional Information

Artist: Renato Bontempi (1896-1988)

Born to Marche parents but lived in the city of Italy in his youth, he studied art at the Academy of Lucca, a city where he then resided even after the First World War in which he actively participated, until 1926, when he moved to Milan. In his first artistic period, Renato Bontempi's production consisted of a series of oil or pastel paintings of small size and almost exclusively of worldly subjects. For a short time he adheres to Marinetti's Tactilism, creating some works by assembling various materials, now lost. In the same period he became a friend of Lorenzo Viani and was able to come into contact with the painting of Carlo Carrà.Following the move to Milan, Bontempi began to progressively move away from the figurative to turn, during the seventies, towards an abstract painting . Participate in the most important Italian and foreign art exhibitions.

Time: 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.

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.
