Lot Essay

'I tear the posters, first from the walls, then from the support: how much style, how much imagination and how many interests accumulate, clash and alternate between the first and last tear. It is not a question from abstract colours being contrasted, but of colours with their own energy, their own spirit, their own vitality, so to speak'. M. Rotella, quoted in E. Prampolini, Art Club, year 1, no. 1, October 1945.
