A retrospective that has helped to make Italians more familiar with the works of one of the most interesting artists of the last 40 years, Flavio Costantini.
“The painter of the anarchists”, “painter of geometries like Paolo Uccello, of transparencies like Vermeer”. This is more has been said of Flavio Costantini, the contemporary artist well-known in England, the United States, France and Switzerland, but unfortunately overlooked, outside a small circle of specialists, in Italy. The Milan Triennale held an exhibition of his works in 2000, curated by Arturo Schwarz: an opportunity to admire the works of one of the most interesting artists of the last 40 years. The catalogue, with an introduction by Rossana Bossaglia, illustrates the works in the show.
