Historical Context of Italy
The classical period of the Romans has exerted a significant influence on the cultural and intellectual evolution of Italy, contributing to the uniqueness of the country and its immense artistic heritage. Italy is also the country that epitomizes the Renaissance, “Riniscita” in its original language, which signifies “rebirth”. From the early 1400s, the Renaissance has been a fervent period of cultural and political awakenings, engendering revivals in art, architecture, music, poetry and philosophy. Although significantly affected by the fascism of Mussolini in the modern and contemporary period, Italy has never lost its place as one of the most fundamental artistic centres, home to pioneering movements such as Futurism and Arte Povera, as well as the expressive painting of the Transavanguardia and the Minimalism related to the Zero Movement. Some highly eminent Italian artists from the twentieth and twenty first centuries include Giorgio Di Chirico, Giacomo Balla, Giorgio Morandi, Alberto Giacometti, Lucio Fontana, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Francesco Clemente and Mimmo Paladino.
Further Biographical Context for Giulio Paolini
Giulio Paolini was born in 1940 and was largely inspired by the 1950s. During the Post War period, New York City became the international focus for Modernism. During the Second World War, many artists had made their way to the city after having fled in exile from Europe, which resulted in a merging and amalgamation of abilities and ideas. Whilst in New York, influential Europeans such as Piet Mondrian, Josef Albers and Hans Hoffmann provided inspiration for American artists, and influenced cultural maturation in the United States for many decades that followed. Significant artists of this period included Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb. In later revisions, the contributions and efforts of female artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Louise Bourgeois have been recognised, amongst many other female creatives.
