Item description for A painter before the Mirror by Emilio Pettoruti...
The memoirs of Emilio Pettoruti ( La Plata 1892-Paris 1971) "A painter before the Mirror" was published a few years before the painters death. Not only do we witness the vicissitudes of his struggle in order to impose his works, but we also find key aspects of his aesthetic convictions. His ties with Futurism and Cubism, his appreciation of color and light, in short a conception of art that led him to evolve towards an original abstraction, as his last paintings so well demonstrate. His essential concepts about art and life are highlighted by an existence defined by his beliefs and passions". (extract of Fermn Fevre's foreword) In the artist-author own words: Art possesses a unique dimension, the one of infinity. That is its mystery, something marvelously indefinite and undefined which lies beyond science, our comprehension and our intellectual and physical truth. If I reach that point, my being, my strength, my faculties and my intellectual capacity will finally consider it sufficient.
