Description

Lucio Fontana (1899–1968), a major figure of postwar European art, blurred numerous boundaries in his life and his work. Moving beyond the slashed canvases for which he is renowned, this book takes a fresh look at Fontana's innovations in painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, and installation art. Most notably, it reevaluates the influence of his native Argentina, where many of his conceptual breakthroughs occurred.

Fontana pushed the painterly into the sculptural and redefined the relationship between mediums. Archival images of environments, public commissions, installations, and now-destroyed pieces accompany lavish illustrations of his work from 1930 to the late 1960s, providing a new approach to an artist who helped define the political, cultural, and technological thresholds of the mid- twentieth century.

Iria Candela is Estrellita B. Brodsky Curator of Latin American Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
