Gianfranco Zappettini - The Golden Age
Mazzoleni London presents The Golden Age, a solo exhibition of paintings by Gianfranco Zappettini and curated by Martin Holman.
Gianfranco Zappettini, co-founder of the international Analytical Painting movement in the 1970s (which spanned Italy, Germany, France, and the Netherlands), is considered one of the most relevant living abstract Italian painters.
The London exhibition will focus on a completely new series of paintings, which investigates the symbolic meaning of gold as a metaphysical sense of spiritual perfection, not just as a precious material.
Zappettini’s works have been exhibited in public museums across Europe (Westfälischer Kunstverein in Münster, 1971; Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna, Turin, 1977; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, 1978; Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome, 1981) and at “documenta 6” in Kassel in 1977.
