Insect in the landscape, 1973

Oil painting on canvas. On the back you can find the signature, the title and the date of the work. It is the work of the Milanese painter Giulio Scapaticci, of the artists of the pictorial-political current who at the turn of the 1950s-1960s was defined as “Existential Realism”. Immediately considered an artist sensitive to existential issues, he began to paint the Milan of the 50s and 60s with its typical railing houses, the peeling windows that open onto a darkly colored urban landscape, the gray industrial suburbs and desolate, quartered oxen and fish hanging on nails. In the mid-1970s, he leaves Milan and moves to the Oltrepò Pavese, where his painting is transformed, goes beyond the previous dark and monochromatic introspective experiences and in his paintings appears a rural world made of more lively and luminous tones: farmhouses, still natures, still lifes, insects, rivers, resting sandy loops. Back in Milan, from the 1980s he returns to depict a more painful humanity, with insects that transform and settle to cover sensations of solitude and voluntary silences. The work proposed here is part of the production attributable to the years of Oltrepò Pavese, with the large Lombard farmhouse on the left, a glimpse of the sunny plain and, in the foreground, an insect. The work is presented in a frame.

Back in Milan, from the 1980s he returns to depict a more painful humanity, with insects that transform and settle to cover sensations of solitude and voluntary silences. The work proposed here is part of the production attributable to the years of Oltrepò Pavese. The scene is divided into two distinct panels: on the left a glimpse of the countryside dominated in the background by the black profile of an industrial city, with the silhouette of an insect in the foreground; on the right, the corpse of a fish, the fossil of the title. The colors are light, but a greyness dominates that emphasizes the gloom of the scene. The painting has a slight damage in the upper right. It is presented in a frame.
