Oil painting on canvas. Signed lower left and back. Influenced in his Parisian years by contact with Expressionism, Fantuzzi placed a marked emphasis in his works on the expression of emotions, of moods. His figures are therefore summary, never completely defined, rather deformed into elongated forms, the faces anonymous, and placed in solitary and melancholy settings; On the other hand, color dominates in his canvases in its most marked ranges, usually the cold tones of blues, greens and purples, which create sometimes violent contrasts. Fantuzzi's main themes are the loneliness of the metropolis and the difficulty of communication in interpersonal relationships, themes that also emerge well in this work, in which a female figure closed in her black raincoat walks in a lonely street, in front of a club. when closing it gives off a bright light, but muffled by the lowered shutter. The work is presented in a frame.

Additional Information

Artist: Eliano Fantuzzi (1909-1987)

Eliano Fantuzzi, born in Modena but raised and artistically trained in Verona, moved to Paris at a very young age, fascinated by the Enlightenment tendencies first and expressionist later, and in this city he began to exhibit and build his career. After a few years in the French army, he returned to Italy in 1943, but in 1948 he was called by the Emir Ibim Saud to decorate the Saudi palace of Taif, where he remained until 1952, frescoing the reception hall. After returning to Italy for good, he exhibited in exhibitions and biennials.

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.

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.
