Additional Information

Artist: Ardengo Soffici (1879-1964)

Writer and painter born in Rignano sull'Arno in 1879, Ardengo Soffici left school early to freely study painting; from 1903 to 1907 he lived in Paris; back in Italy, he was one of the main collaborators of the Voce and founded in 1913, with G. Papini, Lacerba; an interventionist and fighter in the 1915-18 war, he was a collaborator, from its foundation, with the Popolo d'Italia, and a staunch supporter of fascism; in 1939 he was appointed Academician of Italy. His first activity was as an art critic, intended to demolish the usurped famines and to illustrate or enhance some of the major personalities of French impressionism and post-impressionism. Soffici passed through various avant-garde experiences, from Futurism to Cubism, gradually becoming an ardent advocate of them, to then fall back, after the war, on traditional positions. Even as a writer and poet Soffici found in his impressions, memories, landscapes, quick sketches and portraits his congenial measure of lyrical fragmentist, in love, despite a certain pessimism, with life and nature and inclined to "place words like the painter colors". S.'s pictorial production corresponds to that singular position, which he assumed in the literary and critical field, of non-conformism, never drastic, however, with respect to tradition. Cézanne is, among the masters of Paris, the one whose teaching was for him the most fruitful, so much so that it resurfaces from time to time in his best paintings.

Age: 20th Century / 1901 - 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.
