Additional Information

Artist: Dino Rossi (1904-1982)

Dino Rossi, born in Bernareggio in 1904, began devoting himself to painting from a very young age. During his studies in London and Paris he devoted himself mainly to painting "en plein air". In his youth Dino Rossi begins to travel, mainly in American countries. He then resumed his studies by staying in France, England and Spain and from 1947 to 1950 he moved to Switzerland. In the 1960s he began to travel and stay in eastern countries: the desire to discover new landscapes and new pictorial architectures led him to Egypt, Syria and Lebanon. Back in Italy he embarks on a dazzling career as a painter, exhibiting his impressionist works, influenced by his passion for William Turner and the Venetian Masters, in the main national and international galleries. Dino Rossi died on December 31, 1982.

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.

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.
