Alberto Savinio: Musician Writer and Painter

published at the occasion of the exhibition

This splendid catalog features the remarkable work of the multitalented Italian artist. At once a painter, a musician, a writer and a playwright, and the younger brother of metaphysical painter Giorgio de Chirico, Savinio has left us a strange, enigmatic, yet deeply significant work. This exceptional catalog features reproductions of his pictorial works as well as insightful, revealing essays on his works in all fields. The detailed chronology delivers a profound history of the evolution of Savinio's art and that of his brother, and mentions the various influences at the core of their highly original work and unique style. A beautiful catalog on an exceptional artist. 126 pages. 9.5 x 12 inches.

Lavishly illustrated with full-color reproductions of the artist's works. Includes a detailed biography and chronology, as well as a list of exhibited works.
