Maestri del silenzio


From to


Jean Arp, Julius Bissier, Ben Nicholson, Hans Richter, Italo Valenti

In the 1950s the upper Verbano area, between Ascona and Locarno, experienced the extraordinary presence of an intellectual community of artists formed by Hans Arp, Julius Bissier, Ben Nicholson, Hans Richter and Italo Valenti, gathered around the epicentres of the ateliers of the artists Remo Rossi and François Lafranca. An exceptional cosmopolitan climate that marks a fertile season, which from the late fifties will continue for about 15 years, in the name of an increasingly lyrical, synthetic and abstract art, a common feature of all these personalities present in the exhibition.
