A massive full-career retrospective for Arte Informale painter Emilio Vedova

One hundred years after his birth, Emilio Vedova examines the career of the Italian painter Emilio Vedova (1919-2006), best known for his role in the postwar Arte Informale movement. The book surveys Vedova's career in terms of the artist's investigations of line and gesture: from the lively, energetic landscape drawings of the 1930s through his progress toward increasingly expressive, materially inventive work--like the Plurimi of the 1960s, in which the artist broke up the surface of a picture into multiple pieces.

The publication's account of Vedova's career is enriched by an extensive set of illustrations: images of the artist's works, plus reproductions of his personal photographs, texts and archival material that flesh out the artist's historical and artistic context. Emilio Vedova offers a comprehensive overview of the work of a pivotal figure in postwar Italian art.
