About

Image dimensions: 40x60 cm. The painter and the model is an original colored lithograph on paper realized by the Italian artist Mario Russo (1925-2000) A beautiful original print representing the painter portraying an elegant woman with a big hat (she has something of the Fellinian actress) and remembering the academy lesson of drawing and the Classical Greek examples of beauty, is hand-signed in pencil by the artist on the lower right margin. Realized with a fresh line and transmitting the natural fascination towards the female beauty and world, this lithograph is numbered in pencil on lower left margin, a fine specimen from an edition of 150 prints. In very good condition and demonstrating a good inking, except for a light foxing along the margins, this is a really fine contemporary artwork able to adapt to each kind of furniture! Mario Russo (1925 - 2000) The Neapolitan artist moved to Rome, Trastevere, in 1950: in these years began to exihibit in Italy and abroad. In 1953 he stays in Paris, in 1960 in London with his own exhibition. Another exhibition in Monaco of Bavaria in 1965: three years later, in 1968, held two exhibitions in New York and accepted the invitation to exhibit his works at the Royalton College in 1970 Vermont. In 1970 he is enchanted from Sardinia and then decide to live there four months every year. His master is conquered by the sense of beauty, which is synonymous of female body pervaded sensuality. In 1977, during a stay in Canada, obtains new ideas on the man-machine relationship, always inherent in his paintings. In 1979 he was invited by the Italian Institute of Culture of Toronto to exhibit his works at Sudbury University. In 1981 in Florence, he is impressed by the Riace Warriors that insiped him anew series. In 1985 he devoted himself to his studies and construction of major works inspired by the world of cinema and the Fellinian characters: the director, and with him the atmosphere of his masterpieces enters in his paintings and is flattered by that event. In 1986 performs a series designs on the world of Greek and Roman sculpture of the museum in Naples: the following year is present in Washington with an exhibition dedicated to Federico Fellini. In 1989 in Porto Cervo, exhibited a series of paintings dedicated to the beloved Sardinia. In 1991 performs a series of paintings on the Gulf war and the plight of the Kurds: in the same year is the study of a composition consisting of a group of figures in a garden. This is a positive sign of the evolution of his creative language that wants to be the realization of a vision of the world of flowers compared with elements of classical art. In 1992 held a retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Rome: 150 works of 1942-1992.Nel period 1994.a Messina, exhibits for an exhibition entitled "Portrait of a Woman". In 1995 he was invited to the Biennial of Art of humor in Tolentino for a personal exhibition. In 1997 in New York, at the invitation of Alitalia has a solo exhibition at the John F. Kennedy Airport. In 1998 to Ducal Palace in Mantua takes place an exhibition called "Homage to Fellini": in 1999 in Rome, at the Galleria Ca D'Oro, offers an exhibition titled "Women.
