About

Signed lower in the center. Good conditions. Mario Sironi (1885-1961) Mario Sironi was an Italian modernist painter, sculptor, illustrator and designer. He was born in Sassari, his grandfather was the architect and sculptor Ignazio Villa. Sironi spent his childhood in Rome. He embarked on the study of engineering at the University of Rome but he quit after a nervous breakdown in 1903. Thereafter he decided to study painting attending the Scuola Libera del Nudo of the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome. There he met Giacomo Balla, who became "his first real teacher". Sironi also met Gino Severini and Umberto Boccioni, and like them he began painting in a Divisionist style under the guidance of Balla. By 1913, Balla, Boccioni and Severini had developed a new style—Futurism—which Sironi also adopted for a brief time. In 1922 Sironi was one of the founders of the Novecento Italiano movement, which was part of the return to order in European art during the post-war period. In the late 1920s, Sironi painted monumental figures of nudes, peasants, and family groupings in bare, mountainous landscapes. In these works the pure forms of Sironi's earlier work were replaced by a primitivist form of classicism, and his style became more painterly. Rejecting the art market and the concept of the easel painting, he became committed to the ideal of a fusion of decoration and architecture, as exemplified by Gothic cathedrals. As an artist closely identified with Fascism, Sironi's reputation declined dramatically in the post-World War period. The paintings of his later years sometimes approach abstraction, resembling assemblages of archaeological fragments, or juxtaposed sketches. He continued working until shortly before his death on August 13, 1961, in Milan. During his life Sironi exhibited internationally. This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork.
