Toro e cavaliere

2019 circa. 

Oil on canvas.

Under a peaceful azure sky, the scene represented by the artis takes place in a plaza de toros, typical spanish arena dedicated to the corrida. The observer participates to the violent fight between a powerful bull and the Picador, holding his characteristic pike while in the saddle of a white horse harnessed in the typical way: the Picador is a fundamental figure of the corrida de toros, since he has the duty of preparing the bull so that the torero can later square it off more easily.

The work is signed on the right bottom, and overleaf.

1961 Pavia, Italy

Carlo Massimo Franchi (Pavia 1961) graduated at Brera Accademy, where he knew his Master Salvatore Fiume. His early works are strongly influenced by Fiume. The series called Mediterranean women is the best example: sensual women with soft curves, in Oriental atmospheres.

During the later period his style changes in a painting characterized by bright and flat colours. He realizes many works on commission and the series of Kaleidos, in which Cubist influences and the refined line of classical Greek art are mixed up.

He exhibits his works in many Italian and foreign cities (Milan, Turin, Palermo... San Francisco, Los ANgeles, Las Vegas...).

Now he lived and works in Novara.
