Item description for Ercole Pignatelli by Dino Buzzati, L. Lawner & Ercole Pignatelli...
The lush landscapes and fecund flora of Italy's Puglia region animate the large-scale paintings of Ercole Pignatelli, whose 70th birthday coincides with this retrospective publication. Working on a variety of surfaces including glass, canvas and wood, Pignatelli captures close-up tangles of tree branches extending beyond the frame, creates mysterious Cubist cities emerging as if from mirages, and hides voluptuous nudes behind a veil of incense and a screen of vines. This volume comprises classic and recent works as well as critical evaluations, including an essay by Italian novelist Dino Buzzati, and an extensive interview with the artist. Edited by Alessandro Riva. Essays by L. Lawner and Dino Buzzati. Paperback, 9.5 x 12 in./208 pgs / 117 color and 10 b&w.
