Giuseppe Penone : Matrice, Hardback Book


One of the most important living sculptors and a legendary figure associated with the revolutionary 1960s Arte Povera movement, Giuseppe Penone has combined radicality and classicism in a personal style that has been admired for half a century.

Combining materials such as wood, wax, leather, marble, and bronze, his sculptures reveal a fascination with the transformative forces of nature and themes linked to ecology and environmental conservation. Documenting Penone s exhibition in the historic Palazzo della Civilta Italiana, the new headquarters of FENDI, this beautifully designed monograph serves both as an overview of the artist and a unique document for the extraordinary presentation of Penone s work in the historic context of the city of Rome.
