Additional Information

Artist: Silvio Consadori (1909-1994)

Silvio Consadori was born in Brescia on December 17, 1909. He studied at the "Moretto" Institute of his city and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. His practical training, in the exercise of the fresco, takes place with fellow citizens Giuseppe and Vittorino Trainini and with Eliodoro Coccoli. The Brozzoni "scholarship" obtained in 1928 allows him to go to Paris where he remains for a few years. In 1936 the decisive meeting and falling in love with Burano takes place. In Milan in the same year he won the "Premio Milyus", and in '41 the "Canonica". Among the major national exhibitions in which he participated by invitation, the following should be mentioned: Rome Quadrennial, Venetian Biennial, Milan Permanent Biennial, Sacred Art Exhibitions at the Angelicum. Great was his commitment to religious art with the execution of frescoes, altarpieces, mosaics, in the churches and sanctuaries of Cascia, Oropa, Milan, Rome, in the Vatican. He was among the favorite artists of Paul VI. He taught at the Brera Academy between 1940 and 1973. Silvio Consadori died in his home-studio in Burano, where he is buried, on 1 August 1994. In 2009, as part of the events for the centenary of the artist's birth, Anna Maria Consadori and the Galleria Ponte Rosso simultaneously presented an important review of selected works, for the most part unpublished.

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.

Artistic technique: Painting

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.

Technical specification: Oil on Canvas
