Lucio Fontana (1899–1968), a major figure of postwar European art, blurred numerous boundaries in his life and his work. Moving beyond the slashed canvases for which he is renowned, this book takes a fresh look at Fontana’s innovations in painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, and installation art. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Verdana} Fontana was an important figure in both Italy and his native Argentina, where he pushed the painterly into the sculptural and redefined the relationship between mediums. Archival images of environments, public commissions, installations, and now-destroyed pieces accompany lavish illustrations of his work from 1930 to the late 1960s, providing a new approach to an artist who helped define the political, cultural, and technological thresholds of the mid-twentieth century.

"Fausto Melotti (Rovereto, 1901 - Milan, 1986) is one of the most important Italian artists of the 20th century. From his pioneering experiments with abstraction in the 1930s to his fragile explorations of space in brass and dreamlike narratives in ceramics of the 1970s and 1980s, Melotti has been a major and influential figure in the development of Italian art. This retrospective at Acquavella Galleries covers the entire range of Melotti's contribution to modern art and provides the first opportunity for American audiences to appreciate the unique nature of his art. In creating his work, Melotti harmoniously fused his love for music, passion for poetry and gift for mathematics with a sense of dreamlike fantasy. Melotti's early sculptures in plaster and steel reflect the mathematical rules of music and the geometry of classical beauty while his later works in plaster, I teatrini (Theaters), present imaginary scenes inhabited by fantastic objects and characters. Melotti's great achievement is to express freedom of thought and dream in three dimensions. Thanks to the significant contributions of Elena Geuna, Germano Celant and Steven Nash, this is the first U.S. monograph to provide a detailed analysis of this important artist's entire artistic journey." -- Provided by publisher
