Description
Paolo Baratella - Senza Titolo
Mixed media - Signed - Unique Work - 1964

Paolo Baratella, great artist better known and loved in France and Germany than in Italy, was born in Bologna in 1935.

The tragedies of war were a reality experienced as a child and seen through the eyes of a young artist; he was so impressed that, like a common thread, we can find them in his works, stylised ghosts in clear lights and shadows.

This work from 1964, the period artistically most considered by international critics, offers a paradigmatic vision of his catastrophic subjects.

When he was very young he went to live in Paris, in 1963 he exhibited in London and then in Paris, in 1964 he was an established artist, with articles in Le Monde and in the most prestigious magazines of the time.
The success continued in Germany, Belgium, Spain, with appearances in museums in Paris, Brussels, Berlin, Hanover, Munich, Dusseldorf etc.
One of his paintings against racism was seized in Paris and then condemned to be burned publicly; Sartre also spoke about it.

In the 1990s, while continuing his international career, he was a professor at the Accademia di Brera.

The work, pastel and Indian ink on paper, signed and dated on bottom right, is finely framed and protected by glass.
With artist’s certificate of authenticity on photo.
