Description

A two-volume, slipcased, definitive account of Fontana's ceramic output

This massive survey is the most complete and updated publication to explore the ceramic work of Argentine Italian painter, sculptor and theorist Lucio Fontana (1899-1968), presenting approximately 2,000 pieces made from 1936 to 1966. The result of a shared project between Fontana scholars Enrico Crispolti and Luca Massimo Barbero, the catalog provides a thorough account of Fontana's oft-overlooked history with the medium, as well as his critical role in 20th-century art.
Organized in chronological and thematic order--the latter of which is divided into two sections, "Figurative" and "Spatial"--works are accompanied by bibliographical and exhibition references, informed by fresh research. Barbero's ambitious vision for the book was made possible by Fondazione Lucio Fontana's meticulous archival process, carried out over the course of more than 50 years.
