Antonio Calderara, Giorgio Griffa Works on Paper
It would certainly be true to say that the fifty years of exhibition history at the Annemarie Verna Galerie began with a strong connection to Italy, to its early and then-contemporary avant-garde: Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni and more than anyone else Antonio Calderara, the maestro, born in 1903. Up until his death in 1978, numerous exhibitions were held, and the friendship, veneration and respect associated with this wonderful artist personality are central elements that imbued the first decade of the gallery's history with atmosphere and meaning. Forty years have passed since Antonio Calderara’s death. A small group of works is now intended as a remembrance.
