About

Piero Sadun (Spanish, 1919 – 1974) White, 1965 Oil on canvas 35.1/2 x 39.1/2 in. ( 90.2 x 100 cm.) Signed ‘Piero’ (on the reverse) This painting comes from the more interesting part of Sadun's career while exhibiting with the likes of Victor Pasmore and Lucia Fontana at the Galleria Editalia and retains the studio stamp on the reverse of the canvas, presumably signed additionally by the curator. Provenance: Former Japanese collection, the original frame had been hidden behind perspex and a metal frame. Piero Sadun was born in Siena on 11th November 1919. As a teenager he joined the world of Sennese artists attending evening classes under the tutelege of the painter Umberto Giunti. In 1938, due to the fascist regime he could not complete his studies as a Jew at the high school so prepared privately for the final test. He obtained his degree and left for Florence to the workshop of Prima Conti. Prima Conti, however, an official painter of the regime, had to let Sadun go. After studying with Memo Vagaggini, Sadun opened his studio in Siena where he became a prominent figure in society. He painted frescoes between 1940-1941 and in this period became very good friends with Cesare Brandi. He would sign everything during the war under his pseudonym ‘T.Duna’. On 22nd November 1943, he escaped the clutches of those who would have him deported and joined a partisan brigade until the allies free Siena in 1944. In early 1945 he moved to Rome, where, in 1947, he set up his first exhibition. In his career he had further exhibitions in New York and Milan and won several awards. In 1966, he became the co-founder of an artistic group at Galliera Editalia with Lucia Fontana and Victor Pasmore amongst others. This painting comes from that exhibition and it retains the studio stamp on the reverse of the canvas presumably signed additionally by the curator. This group gave rise to a magazine called Qui Arte Contemporanea of Rome. There have recently been 2 exhibitions in L’Aquila and Siena to celebrate the centenary of his birth.
