Mario Schifano: The Eighties

Considered one of the twentieth century's greatest protagonists of Italian painting, Mario Schifano produced works that coincided with Pop and monochrome trends, ensuring them a critical reception. Many of Schifano's works combine the impetuosity of the Italian and international Transavanguardia (European neo-expressionism) with a hyper-modern point of view, derived from the speed of technology and mass-media chaos. This monograph features extensive documentation of Schifano's lively, colorful paintings, as well as many previously unpublished photographs.
