A master of Abstractism between informal art and sign-based painting. The unmistakable sign of Giuseppe Capogrossi (1900–1972), like the gesture of Lucio Fontana and the material of Alberto Burri, have left an indelible mark on the history of twentieth-century Italian art. Capogrossi: A Retrospective is the final tribute to one of the absolute leaders of the postwar art scene. The book is conceived as a genuine, extended monograph, featuring rich photographic and textual documentation, much of which has never before been published. The book investigates the pathway taken by the artist during a life long activity, thanks to detailed critical historical essays by L. M. Barbero, F. R. Morelli, V. Rivosecchi, G. Bertolino, F. Pola, G. Mastinu, S. Salvagnini, P. Bolpagni, and L. d’Angelo.
Luca Massimo Barbero, associate curator of the Peggy Guggenheim Foundation in Venice and former director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome, has curated important exhibitions and edited catalogues on contemporary artists—including Fontana, De Pisis, De Chirico, Savinio, and others—both in Italy and abroad.
