Flaminio Gualdoni: Piero Manzoni: An Artist’s Life

Regular price Regular price $35

This book is a biography of the celebrated Italian artist Piero Manzoni. Realized in collaboration with the Fondazione Piero Manzoni and authored by Flaminio Gualdoni, it first appeared in Italian in 2013, published by Johan & Levi Editore. The publication traces the guiding themes of Manzoni’s iconic, experimental body of work through the lens of his rapid and diverse creative development, as well as the artistic partnerships he formed within the Italian and European avant-gardes.

Gualdoni states, “Manzoni was a figure of profound intellectual formulations and fulminating intuitions, who understood from the start that original artistic practice could only take place against the backdrop of cosmopolitan European culture, and he decided to contribute to that culture in a lucid and decisive manner.”
