Gian Paolo Dulbecco
Notturno Night

1997

About

Notturno, night. Gian Paolo Dulbecco, born in La Spezia (Italy) in 1941, begins painting at the end of the 50s. He also devotes himself to the engraving techniques, especially to the "puntasecca". In 1966 he graduates at the Polytechnic University in Milan. His first exhibitions begin in the last years of the 60s when he moves to Rome. In 1971 he comes back to Milan, taking part in many important art exhibitions. In 1982-83 he creates a set of paintings on the "Via Crucis" theme, now placed in the S.Gemma Church in Monza; at the same time, he presents some paintings in various sacred-art exhibitions. In 1984 he wins a prize from the Cartier's Collection in Milan. In 1992 he is among the winners in a national competition organized by the Italian revue "Arte". In 1992-93 he revisits the "Tarots" theme, that he had already developed in the previous years: a special set of these 22 paintings, devoted to the tobacco's subject and history, is included by the French art critic Pierre Restany in the show "Art et Tabac", which is presented in various European countries. A period of various exhibitions in Europe and Japan follows. In July 2002 the Italian Ministry for Heritage and Cultural Affairs supports a significant anthological exhibition in Ravello, with his paintings from 1990 to 2002. He developed his own language modulated on arrangements of color and light in a search for formal value, often expressed on canvasses of small dimensions. Combined with the pursuit of creative refinement, his painting is characterized by a marked state of disorientation as a metaphor for the universal interrogative. The result is a universe of magic realism, organized without purpose, in a suspended atmosphere and frozen in time.

He settled in Rome in 1969 then moved again to Milan, where his life was interspersed with several stays in Europe. In 1975 he moved to Monza. A self-taught painter, he developed his own language modulated on arrangements of color and light in a search for formal value, often expressed on canvasses of small dimensions. Combined with the pursuit of creative refinement, his painting is characterized by a marked state of disorientation as a metaphor for the universal interrogative. The result is a universe of magic realism, organized without purpose, in a suspended atmosphere and frozen in time. A number of his works are in Italian and European public collections, including the Collection of Fantastic Art at the Castle of Gruyères (Switzerland), the Paul VI Museum of Sacred Art (Concesio, Brescia, Italy), the Panorama Museum (Germany), the Collection of Art of the City of Ravello (Salerno, Italy), the Museo de Tarocchi (Tarot Museum) of Riola (Bologna, Italy), the Art Collection of the Province of Palermo (Italy).
