Lucio Fontana : Catalogue raisonné of the works on paper
A c atalogue raisonné of Fontana's works on papers featuring more than 5,500 works executed between 1928 and 1968
The catalogue raisonné of the works on paper by Lucio Fontana (Rosario de Santa Fe, 1899 - Varese, 1968) is one the most complete and cutting-edge publications on this fundamental aspect of the work of one among the leading protagonists of twentieth century's artistic development. Experimentation on paper was Fontana's chosen means to test the richness and novelty of his inspiration. In fact, through his works on paper he would constantly verify his insights, both in the embryonic and defining stage of his formal and conceptual discoveries.
This catalogue raisonné starts with the astonishing corpus of figural works and culminates in the artist's original invention of "spatial" art, which led to the creation and development of the highly individual "holes," "environments" and "slashes." The catalogue raisonné presents more than 5,500 works executed between 1928 and 1968, with individual entries that include bibliographical and exhibition reference.
