Predominant color is blue.

The work is in a series of 100.

1933 Milano, Italy

Lucio Del Pezzo (Naples, 13 December 1933 - Milan, 12 April 2020) was an Italian artist, painter and sculptor. Among the founders of the Group 58 of Naples, with a neo-surrealist and neo-Dadaist approach, Del Pezzo has also collaborated with the document Documento Sud.

His works from the 1958-1960 period proposed assemblies of various objects, including fragments of prints and popular images. In 1960 he moved to Paris, then to Milan, where several monographic exhibitions were dedicated to him. The first dates back to 1974.

Starting from 1962, Del Pezzo created his own repertoire of "paintings" or "sculptures", made up of monochrome geometric panels, on which shelves or hollowed out concavities are inserted, which support regular geometric objects (pins, wooden eggs, bowls, mannequins, etc.) sometimes very colorful. The playful aspect is always present in his object-paintings and assemblages.

For the ironic tone and for the use of decontextualized everyday objects, these works refer to Pop Art; but there is an evident recovery of Giorgio De Chirico, Carlo Carrà, Giorgio Morandi (Motivo, 1967) and of the geometries of metaphysical painting.
