  • About the work

Serigraph work by the Pop master Mimmo Rotella, belonging to the folder "Mimmo Rotella. I maestri del 900" created in 2000 as a tribute to the great names of 20th century art, which included six different silkscreen prints in a print run of 100 copies in Arabic numerals plus a print run of XX copies in Roman numerals. The work in this case is a tribute to the great Giorgio Morandi and his famous still lifes, in the typical style of Mimmo Rotella. The silkscreen print has some tears that characterise the artistic act of the Calabrian artist. The series is made on 320 gram Moulin de Guè paper and bears the printer's dry stamp.

The work is signed in pencil at the bottom right and numbered 54/100 at the bottom left.


About the Artists

1918 Catanzaro, Italy

Domenico "Mimmo" Rotella (Catanzaro, 7 October 1918 – Milan, 8 January 2006)  was an Italian artist and poet who is best known for collages made from torn advertising posters in a medium which he called “double décollages.” He was born on October 7, 1918, in Catanzaro, Italy and studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Naples before moving to Rome in 1945.

There, he became associated with the Lettrism movement and—along with Raymond Hains, Jacque Villeglé, and François Dufrêne—became known as one of Les Affichistes, an artist group credited as the forefather of Street Art. His first solo exhibition was held in 1951 in at the Galleria Chiurazzi in Rome, and later that same year, he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship with which he traveled to Kansas City University.

In 1961, he was invited by Pierre Restany to join the New Realism movement, whose members included Yves Klein, Arman, and Jean Tinguely. In 1964, he represented Italy at the Venice Biennale. He died on January 8, 2006 in Milan, Italy at the age of 87.
