Italian artist Lucio Fontana tore apart the modern art establishment - literally. Trained initially as a sculptor, Fontana (1899-1968) blurred the lines between painting and sculpture by creating works that combined both form and color in a spatial context, most famously exemplified by his slashed canvases of the 1950s and 60s. Fontana's work was truly conceptual, in that the ideas he wanted to express were more important than the actual work itself. With titles like "Concetto Spaziale" (Spatial Concept) and "Scultura Spaziale" (Spatial Sculpture), his pieces served as visual explanations of his ideas. From his early work in collaborating with architects through his years in Buenos Aires (where, in the mid-1940s, he published the famous "White Manifesto" and "Technical Manifesto of Spatialism," among others), his experimental light installations of the early 1950s, and his later experiments with various media, this book covers the entire career of Italy's pioneering abstract artist.
