Mazzoleni is delighted to announce its participation at TEFAF Maastricht 2019. This is the gallery’s second occasion at the fair, highlighting works by artists including: Alberto Burri, Lucio Fontana and Hans Hartung. The curated presentation features works by major Post-War Italian artists with a focus on the Art Informel and European gestural abstraction.
A selection of distinctive works spanning from the 50s to the late 60s by Lucio Fontana (1899-1968), will be on display. The presentation will feature a striking red Concetto Spaziale, from 1956 (oil, holes, mixed media and glass on canvas) and a terracotta Concetto Spaziale from 1957, that exemplifies the artist’s passion for interrogating space with a forceful manipulation of surface and matter. This important work provides the viewer with a fascinating insight into the development of his artistic research. Renowned artist, Alberto Burri, (1915-1995), will also be represented by Sacco, 1956, a work created from burlap and oil on canvas. Burri discarded the traditional approach to painting by utilising a host of everyday materials, such as burlap and plastic. His pioneering practice altered the way in which artists now subsequently work around the world.
There will also be a focus on European abstraction with works by dynamic painting by Hans Hartung (1904-1989) alongside revolutionary artist Victor Vasarely (1906-1997). Hartung will be represented by T1962 – R46, a vinyl on canvas, from 1962, while a striking geometrical work from Vasarely will be displayed: Bella-Neg, was created in 1957, and is part of the celestial Bellatrix Series, produced during Vasarely’s “black and white period” of the late 50s. The work benefits from exceptional provenance, having been in the collection of acclaimed director Francis Ford Coppola.Lucio Fontana, Concetto Spaziale, 1956.
