The exhibition brings together a recent collection of works and special commissions of the artist’s Cloud series, shown for the first time in the UK.
Alberto Bertoldi’s Cloud series represent a contemporary exploration of the Classical traditions of plein air painting, capturing the beauty of painting natural light in all its power and exploring the human obsession with cloud formations.
Alberto Bertoldi (b. 1955) began staging award-wining solo shows across Italy in the early 1990’s, before going on to exhibit worldwide at galleries and shows including Daegu in South Korea, Galerie Zur.Hofstatt in Basel, Hermitage Gallery in Texas, USA, and Society Redaktionfest in Vienna. In 2012 he exhibited at the 54TH Venice Biennale, under the curatorship of Vittorio Sgarbi. He has been awarded numerous prizes throughout his career including the Purchase Award and Solo Artist Award from Forni Gallery. Alberto Bertoldi’s Cloud works represent a contemporary exploration of the Classical traditions of “plein air” painting, capturing the beauty of painting natural light in all its power and exploring the human obsession with cloud formations. This is the inaugural show for Moatti Masters|Contemporary – a new venture by Emmanuel Moatti combining his 30 years career in old masters with his passion for collecting contemporary art, to open a gallery space connecting the two disciplines and work with living fine artists who draw inspiration from the art-historical language, in order to create a new modernity.
