Mario Schifano27. Jun - 16. Aug 14 / ended Luxembourg & Dayan Gallery
Tuesday to Friday: 11am – 5pm, Saturday: 12pm – 4pm
Luxembourg & Dayan is delighted to announce an exhibition of seminal works by Mario Schifano (1934–98), one of Italy’s most significant post-war artists. Schifano was a truly radical figure who considered painting to be the frontier of the avant-garde, an intrinsically human art form capable of capturing the lifeblood of con- temporary culture. His prodigious talent was at its height in the ‘60s, a decade in which he experimented extensively with media and techniques, traversing a wide spectrum of styles that he made entirely his own. By focusing upon the years when his artistic output was at its most intense, the exhibition ‘Mario Schifano 1960 – 67’ demonstrates the artist’s extraordinary range of techniques and materials during this era. The works featured in the exhibition have important early provenance - some passing through the hands of legendary dealers like Giorgio Marconi and Ileana Sonnabend - others previously in inspired collections like Franchetti in Rome.
