Description : Fiori in vaso

Oil on canvas board. Signed lower right. Ezio Pastorio, originally from Cremona but transplanted to Valseriana after his studies, is considered "a great Italian master of the 20th century, who knew how to renew the artistic language of the landscape while maintaining a strong link with 19th century painting". His production is post-impressionist in nature, especially in the large landscape production that depicts the Po and Bergamo plains, the Venetian lagoon and some Parisian glimpses, admired during some travels. In his works, Pastorio creates suggestive atmospheres using infinite ranges of colours, which harmonize and sometimes even contrast, but always presented as a transparency which annuls the static nature of the representation and with a delicacy which expresses his devout religiosity towards nature and the created. Less frequent in his production are floral subjects, such as this composition of variegated flowers in vases, which nonetheless reflect all the artist's expressive capacity and his skilful use of colour. The work, coming from a private collection, is presented in a frame.

Additional Information

Artist: Ezio Pastorio (1911-2006)

Born in Cremona in 1911, Ezio Pastorio studied in Naples at the Institute of Fine Arts and in Milan at the Brera Academy with Aldo Carpi. Starting in 1941 he frequented the Val Seriana and Clusone, where he moved to live and work, and here he met Arturo Tosi, Manzù and Funi and with them he established working relationships and friendships. The beginning of the exhibition activity dates back to 1938, while his first personal exhibition was in 1946 at the Galleria Santo Spirito in Milan, a gallery founded by himself together with some painter friends and managed with the critical collaboration of Borgese, Marussi, De Grada, Apollonius. He participated in the 1948 and 1950 editions of the Venice Biennale, and after that he exhibited in personal exhibitions in the most famous galleries in Rome, Florence and Milan. Between the seventies and eighties he participated in some important anthological exhibitions set up by cultural institutions in Paris, Milan, Clusone, Cremona. The artist's long itinerary is followed and commented on by illustrious critics. Illustrious names of critics have written about him, including Leonardo Borgese, Alberico Sala, Giuseppe Gorgerino, Mario Ghilardi and Mario Monteverdi. Ezio Pastorio died in Milan in 2006.

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.
