About

Giuseppe Sexto Canegallo (Italian, 1892 – 1966) New Dawn, circa 1920 Oil on canvas laid down on board 39.1/4 x 27 in. (100 x 69 cm.) An incredibly powerful and exciting work by the Italian artist Giuseppe Sexto Canegallo. Canegallo concentrated on depicting the human form on vast canvasses, symbolising various moments of human life and looking at the primordial needs of man. His paintings are philosophical, dreamlike and very forward thinking. By 1914 Canegallo moved to Milan where he was influenced by the Italian Divisionist movement spending time with painters like Cominetti, Nomellini and Romolo Romani. Like Romani, Canegallo started to execute his works with symbolic and scientific leanings, based on geometric schemes and concentrating on the iridescence of light within the composition. In 1920 Canegallo had 2 major exhibitions showing 50 of his works in Rome and then later in Genoa at the Teatro Carlo Felice. Canegallo has had important retrospectives in Genoa, at the Galleria Rotta in 1968 and in Milan in 1978. Some of his works are held in the Galleria d’Arte Moderne, Genoa
