About

Football is a beautiful lithography print, realized in 1973 by the Italian artist Giovanni Omiccioli (Rome, 1901-1975). Hand-signed on the lower right in pencil and dated, titled on the lower left. Good conditions, except for some small cutting and folding along the white margins which do not affect the artwork. The artwork represents a beautiful football land while boys are playing through congruous and harmonious coloring. Giovanni Omiccioli was an Italian painter belonging to the modern movement of the Scuola romana with dynamic paintwork. Having joined the Scuola Romana movement, in 1928, Omiccioli collaborated especially with Mario Mafai and Antonietta Raphael, as well as with Scipione and Raffaele Frumenti. His pictorial activity started in 1934 and a few years afterwards, he exhibited work at the IV Mostra del Sindacato Fascista (1937) within the Fine Art circle. In the same period he held his personal expo at Apollo Gallery in Rome. Omiccioli was also active in politics and, with Mario Mafai, Guttuso and Afro, he created the first header of the Italian communist newspaper L’Unità in 1945, immediately after the Italian Liberazione. During the same year he exhibited at the I Mostra dell’Arte against barbarism, promoted by this newspaper at the Gallery of Rome with catalogue by Antonello Trombadori, presenting a dramatic political painting by the title “La fucilazione di Bruno Buozzi”. After winning an award at the Marzotto Prize Convention, with “Il Pastore con la capretta”, Omiccioli exhibited at many important art centers: especially noticeable are his anthological displays at the Hermitage of Leningrad, his personal at the La Medusa Modern Gallery of Naples, and in the 1950s his participation in exhibitions at Pittsburgh, Boston, and Tokyo. He also took part in a travelling exhibition around the Scandinavian countries organised by the Italian Art Club, as well as displaying some paintings at the various Rome Quadriennale of 1955, 1959 e poi del 1966, and at the Venetian Biennale of 1952, 1954, 1956. In 1959 he also presented a religious painting on hardboard, Cristo crocifisso (Crucified Christ), at the VIII Biennale d’Arte Sacra in Bologna. During the 1960s, Omiccioli exhibits at three Figurative Arts Reviews in Rome and Lazio (1961, 1963, 1965) and at the VI Biennale of Rome in 1968.[3] Vaporous and tender, and yet always springing from an unchangeably intense love for nature and man, his palette of colors give a soft breath of light and a suggestive atmosphere to his whole artistic production.
