Additional Information

Artist: Alpenore Gobbi (1864-1960)

Born in Montecchio (Emilia) in 1864, Alpenore Gobbi first studied with Gaetano Chierici and then went to Florence to study nude painting, but soon had to switch to genre painting to be able to support himself. In 1896 he embarked for South America, settling first in Montevideo and in 1909 in Buenos Aires: he soon established himself in these countries, both as a painter and as a decorator, and in particular he established himself as a portraitist, portraying several famous and important Latin characters. Americans. In 1912 he went to the United States, where he remained for over five years, mainly performing interior decoration works, both on canvas and on panels. In 1922 he returned to Italy, settling in Florence.

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.
