Renato Guttuso
Signed Autograph Postcard

1936

About

Autograph postcard signed by Renato Guttuso to the Countess Pecci-Blunt. On the front, there is a reproduction of a detail of the Leonardo's "Cenacolo". On the back, there is a stamp, two postmarks (one in black ink of "Milano centro, Corrisp and pacchi"; another in blue ink "Gallerie e Monumenti della Lombardia") and the Italian artist's original signature in black ink. From the black postmark, the date and the place of shipment can be read: Milan, July 19th 1936. Excellent conditions, with two black ink stains of fingerprints on the lower margin. Precocious talented artist, Renato Guttuso (Bagheria, Sicily, 1911 – Rome, 1987), wrote this postcard during his three-year stay in Milan, where he left for military service and had the opportunity to meet Manzù, Birolli, Fontana, Antonio Banfi. In this fervid environment, his social art took shape from a moral and political engagement more and more evident in artworks like “Fucilazione in Campagna” 1937, “Fuga dall’Etna”, “Vucciria”, finally consecrated in the maximum expression of Social Realism like in “La Spiaggia” (1955) and “Carretti in Bagheria” (1956). One year after this postcard, he moved to Rome where he got closer to artists like Birolli, Fontana and Persico. 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.
