Carla Accardi

This volume appears on the occasion of the centenary of the birth of Italian abstract painter Carla Accardi (1924-2014), a key member of the Italian avant-garde whose artwork influenced the Arte Povera movement in the late 1960s. The monograph consists of 150 colour pages featuring the artist's works, plus an anthology of critical literature devoted to her practice between 1950 and her passing. The anthology is introduced by an essay entitled "Carla Accardi: Between the pages of criticism", which offers a general overview of Accardi's contributions to the Italian art scene and illustrates the interpretative trends that have emerged in recent years.
