Artworks from the Lanfranchi Collection

By (author) Luca Massimo Barbero


  • Published for the first time ever, the Lanfranchi Collection is an important testament to the impact of the Spatialism and Nuclear Art movements in post WWII Italy 
Full Description

Following WWII in Italy, the art movements Spatialism (founded by Lucio Fontana) and Nuclear Art (founded by  Enrico Baj, Sergio Dangelo, and Gianni Bertini) represented a strongly original and alternative artistic vision to an art world divided between Realism and Abstraction. Based on the outstanding Luciano Lanfranchi Collection, this magisterial, groundbreaking, 2-volume publication traces the birth and development of these movements, and offers extensive contextual and critical essays by notable art historians, with full-page and partial-page illustrations and documents, exhibition histories, bibliographies, and interviews.
