Further Biographical Context for Carlo Capanni
Born in 1939, Carlo Capanni was predominantly inspired by the 1950s. Abstract Expressionism, a form of painting that studied notions of spirituality and the sublime, dominated the 1950s. A number of artists concentrated on the formal properties of painting, and action painting took inspiration from the political freedom of the United States, as opposed to the strict strictures of the Soviet bloc. Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb were influential artists of this time. The male dominated environment has been subsequently revisited to recognise the contributions of female artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Louise Bourgeois, amongst others.
