Antonio Calderara : 1903-1978 Paperback / softback
This work is a comprehensive and up-to-date monograph devoted to the oeuvre of Antonio Calderara (1903-1978), which retraces the steps of his over sixty-year-long artistic career.
In his early years, Calderara embraced figurative art, influenced in part by the leading Italian art trends of the time, such as the Novecento, Chiarismo, Scapigliatura and Divisionismo movements (but also old masters like Piero della Francesca). Subsequently he turned to abstract art, in line with the shift in this direction in Milan, spearheaded by the Galleria Il Milione and Carlo Bellis KN, and later MAC.
In any case, Calderaras art was always rigorously international in scope, as shown by his ties to leading exponents of European abstract art such as Mondrian, Albers and Mavignier.
With an introduction by Luciano Caramel, and five sections covering the artists personal history and his career within the context of the cultural milieu of his time, the monograph offers a thorough examination of the work of Calderara.
