Cardi Gallery Milan presents a new exhibition of Claudio Verna, with both new and historical works. The exhibition is curated by Piero Tomassoni.
Claudio Verna was born in Guardiagrele, in the province of Chieti, in 1937.
From 1942 to 1956 he studied in Umbria, then at the University of Florence, where he graduated with a thesis on “Figurative Arts in Industrial Civilization” and where he held the first major exhibitions. In 1961 he arrived in Rome. For a few years he gave up exhibitions to experiment and define in total autonomy the thought and the tools of his own research. In 1967 he returned to exhibit, now definitively convinced of the “ancient and inalienable” reasons for painting. It is the period of the so-called “Analytical painting”, aimed at a reflection on making art today and on the relationship with modern tradition.
