Lot Essay

This work is recorded in the Archivio Mario Schifano, Rome,under no. 02393130511.

'The best Italian painter of his generation understood before the others that the world had changed and that, for the time being, the only available tool for not being evicted from history was to continue to experience it historically: a genuine aesthetic revolution. The painted and/or emulsified words enter the image, they affect it, interpret it and decorate it, like some supple and mobile ornament.' (M. Corgnati, Mario Schifano. In diretta, exh. cat., Sangallo ART Station, Florence, 2010, p. 13).
