  • About the work

Technique: screen printing;

Year: about 1970;

Screen printing realised by the artist Gianni Dova, who partecipated in Spatialism during the second half of the Twentieth Century. In this artwork there's an influence of artists that took part in this art trend, who created on the canvas constructions that demonstrate the existence of a three-dimensionality in the world. Their aim was to give a new life to the energies that animated the postwar period, when bore a new awareness of the existence of natural forces that are hidden like particles and neutrons that pressed with force on the "old" canvas. The subject of the artwork is a nest on the rocks, both animated through the use of abstracted and intense colours. The work is signed by the artist bottom right and numbered 123/130 bottom left.

About the Artists

1925 Rome, Italy

Gianni Dova (Rome January 8, 1925 - Marina di Pisa October 14, 1991) was an Italian painter. After he attended the classical studies in Milan since 1942, he was interested in Architecture major. However, he changed his projects during the War because of his patronage of artists who met themselves in literary cafés and who had as landmark the newspaper "Corrente" published by Ernesto Treccani. In 1945 he married Maria Grazie della Valle and the next year he adhered to Realism beyond Guernica's manifesto. In 1947 he exhibited some of his artworks in Venice and in Milan and he adhered to Spatialism with Lucio Fontana, Roberto Crippa, Carlo Cardazzo and other artists, becoming one of the most important protagonist of that. He also signed different manifestos of this trend like the fourth one, the fifth one and the sixth one. Then he joined the Nuclear art with Enrico Baj and Sergio Dangelo. In 1963 one of his works is exhibited to the Contemporary Italian Paintings exhibition in Australia. In 1963-64 he also showed in the Peintures italiennes d'aujourd'hui in Middle East and North Africa. His first artworks came to Surrealism, to whom Dova integrates reminiscences of Max Ernst.
