Cattaneo Alvaro (Alvaro) - 100,00
Oil on canvas - Signed - Authentic Alvaro Master

Alvaro was born in Milan in 1937. Bicycles with their shadows, gates and flowered windowsills are among his favourite subjects. A perfect colour balance and the use of spatula create an atmosphere of relaxation and joy. In each of his compositions with warm formalist results, he exalts a nature that is still in time, a metaphysical reality made of blues, yellows, reds, greys and greens. The yellow of the sunflowers, which seem to dance in the wind, a colour enhanced by sunlight, which is counterbalanced by the blue uniformity of the sky, fickle, of transient things.
