Each to his own Pirandello and Freud: painting becomes flesh
Written by Maria Rita Cerilli   

pirandello.jpgInserted into the initiatives of the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy proposed by the Italian Pavilion at the 54th International Art Exposition, Venice Biennial, Fausto Pirandello: the Nudes brings together more than twenty paintings, among which there are six never before exhibited pastels, by the great Roman painter, son of Luigi Pirandello. Bodies which have been "stripped": unbridled, menacing and tormented.

 

These are the protagonists of the exposition which, in addition to presenting for the first time certain works by the artist, also compare the art of Pirandello with that of Lucian Freud, in a section dedicated to the ideal pictorial parallelism between the son of the famed dramatist, and the grandson of Sigmund Freud, father of psychoanalysis.
