About This Book

A complete and sumptuous survey of the brief but dazzling career of this great protagonist of Italian art. An extraordinary selection of works and a lavish set of illustrations reconstruct in an intimate and thorough way the brief but dazzling trajectory, between creative output and unbridled emotion, followed by Tancredi Parmeggiani, a great exponent of postwar Italian art.
From his academic debut to the lyrical colorism of the early days, and from the experimentation typical of nonrepresentational spatialism to his period of gestural abstractionism, culminating in the visionary aesthetics of the sixties and characterized by uneasy and tormented figurations, this book reconstructs all the phases of his career.
