Fendi Shopping Bag Landscape (Italian, Modernism, Mid-century, Red, Fashion)

1963

About

A large, mid-century oil landscape comprising a view of abstracted shopping bags in Fendi's signature shades of cream, bistre and scarlet contrasted against a dramatic coral sunset. Signed lower right 'G. Pisani', titled verso 'Paesaggio con Valigia' and dated 1963. Exhibited: Galleria El Centro, Naples, Italy, 1963. (label verso). Exhibited: F.P. Michetti Premier Painting Prize, 1963. (label verso). This notable Italian modernist studied at the Accademia de Bella Arti in Naples under Emilio Notte. Much of Pisani’s career in the 1960s and 70s involved reinvigorating the Neapolitan art scene with assemblages, ‘object art’ and performance art, an approach that was critically described and acclaimed by poet and writer Edoardo Sanguineti. The recipient of numerous medals, prizes and juried awards, including the Prize City Cesenatico (1955), Pisani began exhibiting widely and with success in the early 1950s. His exhibition history includes the 8th Biennale of San Benedetto del Tronto (1969), Palazzo Dugnani (1983) and the Non-Existent Gallery. Other solo and group exhibitions include his three-time participation in the National Quadrennial Art Shows (VIII, Rome, 1960; IX, Palazzo dei Esposizione, 1965/66; XI, Palazzo dei Congressi, 1986). A teacher, Pisani has worked at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan and the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples, which he later became the director of. Pisani’s works can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Capodimonte, the Museum of Contemporary Art Donna Regina (MADRE), Museum of Contemporary Religious Art (ARCA) and the Palazzo Reale of Caserta. *With thanks to Museo Madre, Via Settembrini 79, 80139 Napoli Reference: Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs, Vol 11 p. 23; Davenport’s Art Reference Guide, 2009/10 Edition, p. 2027; Dictionnaire de l'Art Moderne et Contemporain, Hazan, Paris, 1992 et al.
