Catalog of the exhibition at Tornabuoni Art Gallery in London dedicated to Lucio Fontana. The essays give great insight into the origins, content and features involved in the works and in the artistic movement that the artist himself referred to as 'Spazialismo' (Spacialism), illustrating the underlying reasons for the growing international interest in Fontana's work. The authors have provided important curatorship, with historical reconstructions and critical analyses that bring to bear upon this selection of works the full significance of the targeted research programme. The idea behind the selection is to document the main cycles of work to which Fontana dedicated the last twenty years of his life, so we find canvases from the Holes cycle from the opening years of the 1950s, the Stones from 1953-56, the Baroques from 1956-57, the Impastos and the Anilines from the end of the decade. Together with these works, there are naturally also various types of Slashes, from the experimental ones of 1959-60 to the essentially iconic works of the 1960s, as well as the complex Little Theatres of 1964-66 and the new Oils with Craters of the early 1960s. Text in English and Italian.
