Works by Bruno Cassinari

Bruno Cassinari (Piacenza 1912 – Milano 1992) is one of the greatest representatives of the group "Corrente". His expressionist art with cubist influence sometimes results a little bit aggressive with a great educational, critical, political and social aim, in contrast with the group "Novecento".

He graduated at the Academy of Brera in Milan with the Master Aldo Carpi; in 1938 he founded the group "Corrente" with Treccani, Morlotti, Guttuso, Birolli e De Grada. He went to Paris with them and here there he was influenced by the Cubism by Picasso. He met Braque and Chagall in Antibes where he set up home and opened an artistic studio in 1949. In 1955 Lionello Venturi wrote about him in his "Commentari". 

In '60s his art was characterized by a deep and personal relism represented with new subjects like flowers, storms and pomegranates. Cassinari obtained a great success and was esteemed by critics, indeed he lived his life travelling to exhibit his paintings in many cities: italian and foreign museums and art galleries. He was protagonist of important contemporary art festivals and he received many awards.
