  • About the book

An exceptional novelty and an indispensable study tool for understanding the work and the artist. This volume is the first Catalogue Raisonné dedicated to the work of Gino de Dominicis (1947-1998), one of the most emblematic, controversial and mysterious figures on the artistic scene after World War II.

A complex and elusive artist, even though he cannot be framed within the currents and movements of the 20th century, He is considered a key figure in contemporary Italian art and a point of reference for the young generations of his time and later.

Gino de Dominicis has chosen to remain outside of media communication and his works have always refused to be homologated by the art system. For his inflexible choice, catalogues or books on his work were never published. His life has always been surrounded by an aura of mystery. This Catalogue does not solve the mystery, but it sheds light on his works and puts his creation in order.

Curated by Italo Tomassoni, the Catalogo Ragionato documents and comments on 632 works, each of which is accompanied by an extensive file that provides, in addition to the usual technical, exhibition and bibliographical entries, information about the context and the circumstances in which they were created and created. In addition to the curator's essay that recalls the Maestro's legend, the Catalogo Ragionato also includes a section dedicated to his writings, the reproduction of rare and unpublished documents, a complete list of his personal exhibitions, his participation in collective exhibitions and an extensive bibliography. The total lack of publications, catalogues and documents on De Dominicis makes this Catalogue Raisonné an exceptional innovation and an indispensable instrument of study for the knowledge of the work and the artist.
