Gian Berto Vanni
Embrace - Very Large Abstract Three Panel Painting With Green and Brown Colors

1985

$65,000

About

Embrace is a majestic abstract artwork composed by 3 panels, each panel measuring 78" x 97". It is part of a long series of works where G. B. Vanni explores mythological themes from all over the world. For this work the subject is a monumental embrace, referring to a divine embrace encompassing all religions and gods. The earth tones of green and brown shades, together with the stratifications defining the image, like geological layers of stones, add to the universality of the representation, as if the viewer is in the presence of an Earth Goddess embracing the whole of humanity. Gian Berto Vanni was born in Rome. He studied with Vordemberge-Gildewart in Holland and color theory with Joseph Albers at Yale University in New Haven. He has been actively involved in the Italian Art scene of the 60s, moving to New York City at the end of the 70s. He thought color theory at the Cooper Union School of Art in NYC for over 30 years. His works have been shown in the United States, Europe and Japan.
