Item description for Lucio Fontana: Catalogue Raisonn by Enrico Crispolti...

This authoritative catalogué raisonné covers over four decades of creative output that comprise Fontana's career. His intuitive rendering of the intrinsic dynamism of contemporary life into images is represented across the early sculptures to the most recent "ambienti": works designed to be neither painting nor sculpture but "forms, color, sound through spaces". In the 1930s Fontana was a leading exponent of a generation of Expressionists. In the 40's and 50's, he was the protagonist of "informal" Spatialism. In the 60's, Fontana became a point of reference for new pictorial and plastic expression. This historical and critical profile brings a huge body of intense, expressive work into focus. This catalog was carried out in collaboration with the Lucio Fontana Foundation, making it the definitive publication on the artist.
Enrico Crispolti is a Professor of Contemporary Art at the University of Sienna in Italy, has been researching Fontana's work for over 40 years.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lucio Fontana: Catalogue Raisonn?

Everything by Fontana  Dec 12, 2007
As an artist, I find this Catalogue to be much more helpful and informative on Fontana than other books. It shows early works and other PROCESS related materials, which reveal much about the artist's background and ultimately artistic intent. Forgo the other books, like Venice/New York, if you want something deep and focussed. If you want Fontana in the form of a "short story" then definitely chose another book.
