Lisa, Aldo and Saul This exhibition by Galleria Annamaria Consadori is in ideal continuity with the one organised in 2021 Saul Steinberg: Milanese homage. In fact, the corpus of drawings, or rather: of drawn letters by Lisa Ponti (1922-2019) presented here is that of her correspondence with Aldo Buzzi (1910-2009).
The exhibition compares the work of two artists, Arduino Cantàfora a nd Delfino Sisto Legnani. The first, with a series of paintings, drawings and engravings ranging from 1975 to 2020; the second, with a group of photographs created for the occasion (2023, with Alessandro Mensi) as comment and reflection on the work of the older master.
Saul Steinberg – Omaggio milanese Galleria Consadori presents the new exhibition with the artoworks by Saul Steinberg. Together with other pieces by Tullio Pericoli, Paolo Ventura and Andrea Ventura.
Andrea ventura – “Epidemic of Nostalgia” Epidemics of nostalgia were reported in the French, German, Italian and Austrian armies during the 18th century. Homesickness was considered to be the greatest risk of disease alongside typhus and scurvy.
Paolo Ventura – “War and Flowers” This summer I began painting flowers, picking them up from their roots, near my studio in Anghiari, Tuscany. Along with the roots and the earth, the war emerges, too. Where I gather flowers, the English and the Germans fought in the summer of 1944, for months they butchered each other on those hills.
