Novecentoitaliano

The following is a series of images freely inspired by the still lifes and domestic interior scenes depicted by the artists of the “Novecento Italiano” group founded in September 1922 by Anselmo Bucci, Leonardo Dudreville, Achille Funi, Emilio Malerba, Piero Marussig, Ubaldo Oppi and Mario Sironi at the gallery of Lino Pesaro in Milano.
Margherita Sarfatti, the supporter and spirit of the movement, defined the movement in the catalogue of the exhibition “Novecento Italiano”: The Novecento group now aspires to create a new, Italian synthesis of the values that from
the North reach the land of ideal Mediterranean beauty. Every people portrays its own character in its art, a character that persists across the changing centuries. The Italian character is expressed in the effort to subordinate individual natural features to the clear, resolute construction of an ideal beauty. A beauty constructed through the synthesis of form, subjected to the simplification of volumes inside precisely defined perimeters. An aesthetic that in spite of its irreality should, in any case, seem real.
