Giuseppe Capogrossi

Past: February 28 → April 13, 2013

The unmistakable sign of Giuseppe Capogrossi (1900-1972), like the gesture of Lucio Fontana and the material of Alberto Burri, has left an indelible mark on the history of Italian art in the 20th century.

Giuseppe Capogrossi’s artistic development extends from the surprising debut of his figurative period and his relationship with the Roman School to the radical nonfigurative innovation of the Origine group, which saw the birth, along with his unique and highly personal sign, of the “Capogrossi case” that was destined to bring this artist, in the fifties and sixties, to the forefront of the contemporary international art scene as a trailblazing and highly original figure.

The exhibition emphasizes on this period which have given to Capogrossi an international renown testified by his presence in different important European and American museums — MoMa in New York, Tate Modern in London, National Art Gallery in Rome and Centre Pompidou in Paris.

Tornabuoni Art presents thirty works chosen from among those already shown in the exhibition Capogrossi. A Retrospective at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his disappearance.
