Aldo Pagliacci
Santi Domenico e Sisto, Rome

1951

About

Signed and dated 1951 Aldo Pagliacci is considered a romantic realist painter whose surrealistic landscapes often show groups of semi-clad and attractive depersonalized youths which suggest the artist's alienation as a gay man. This painting of a church on fire is part of a small group of paintings he made in the 1950s and early 1960s which expresses his anger towards religious orthodoxy. His work can be compared to Eugene Berman (1899-1972) and Giorgio de Chirico (1888 - 1978) who both painted empty and forlorn landscapes evocative of emotional longing.
