Oil on canvas - 1990 circa

Gae Aulenti Square: work by the contemporary artist Anna Antola. Subject of the work is a glimpse of the Milan skyline, which a feminine figure observes smiling while she raises her look. The woman is located in Gae Aulenti square, that according to che common opinion represents the nerve center of the new milanese district of Porta Nuova. On the left, a crane gives an idea of a still growing project that “...volta alto”, i.e. “flies high”, as the painter writes at the feet of the composition. Thanks to a flat use of shades and to a simple and linear style that accompany Antola in all her creations, the artist offers to the viewer a personal perspective of the big arhitectural complex dedicated to the well-known architect and designer Gae Aulenti.
The work is signed by the artist on the right bottom.

1930 Milan, Italy

Anna Àntola was born in Milan, in 1930. She was very attached to her hometown.

Her paint is considered naïf. It's characterized by bright colours and dreamful atmospheres fluctuate between her protagonists' unconscius (principally women) and a fairy world.

She studied at first at the Art School of Castello Sforzesco and then at Brera Accademy in Milan; during theese years she meets Masters as Domenico Cantatore e Carlo Carrà. She loves art and music since when she was young, she travelled very much to study the great past painting: Impressionism, 19th Century Masters and her true love, Pablo PIcasso.

Her women are soft and sensual, pleasent and eccentric. Anna Àntola tell their dreams, passions and wishes in a dreamful Milan, with its narrow streets, places and dreamlike glimpses.

Basic shapes and flat colours recall the 19yh century Expressionism, from Matisse to Gauguin. Intense hues and marked outline to describe a fantastic feminine universe with humor and sensuality.

Today we can find many works of her in many Italian and European museums, from Helsinki to Lisbon.
