About

Scilla is a beautiful etching on cardboard, realized in 1971 by the Italian artist Giovanni Omiccioli (Rome, 1901-1975). Hand-signed in pencil on the lower right and dated. Numbered on the lower left, edition of 71/80 prints. In good conditions except for some foxing. The artwork represents the landscape of beautiful sea with the cliff in Scilla through soft and delicate strokes. Scilla is a small admirable town located on the Tyrrhenian coast of Calabria. Scilla is very ancient, rich in mythology, history, legend, and poetic images that fed for millennia by the suggestiveness of the natural environment. 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”.
