28 October 2006 - 17 January 2007 | Brescia - Museo di Santa Giulia

Great master of Italian painting, Osvaldo Licini (Monte Vidon Corrado, Ascoli Piceno 1894-1958) has seen and lived through many important moments twentieth-century art: from futurism to stay in Paris where he met Kandinsky and Kupka. Starting from the objective reality - the landscape and the hills so beloved - Licini investigates the figurative solutions and unusual space, using a lively coloring, in the works of the twenties. In subsequent work, gradually lightens the sign in a reduction of form that led him, in the thirties, abstract. The catalog thirty-three jobs between 1913 and 1929, in some way "preparatory" best known for its production (the Amalassunte and the rebellious angels) with a laboratory "figurative" who, visiting the usual genres of still life, of portrait and landscape, sets the stage like that visionary and dreamy that characterize his images from World War II onwards.
