Project Description

Antonino Calcagnadoro ( Rieti 1876 – Rome 1935 ), Child in a field

Oil on panel cm 28 x 34 signed, situated ( Rome ) and dated ( 1919 ) lower right.

Some works from the childhood theme topos, frequent in the Calcagnadoro’s career, were on display in 1925 at the solo exhibition which was held in Rome at the Giacomini gallery. This type of compositions are animated by expressive immediacy and a taste for debrided pictoricism, of sketching type, with a palette, as in this case, held on a layer of blaring tones.
