This title features drawings, sketches, temperas by the great master, Mimmo Rotella. A collection of more than 700 works on paper, the majority unpublished, signify an important opportunity to have a closer look at the production of the master who, in 1953, became known for his decollage, the famous 'tearing' that represented a real lacerating of the formal system, opening new ways of perceiving and relationships between art and life. In particular there were two significant moments: firstly, the Roman period, from 1945 to 1951. The first nucleus of drawings (in pencil, ink, pastel, tempera, watercolour) that this book highlights, for the first time in depth, documents seven years of intense work, that of a young man who has recently discovered his exact vocation.After the extraordinarily interesting works of this period, and after a number of astonishingly beautiful sheets from the 1950s, this volume then pauses on Rotella's output of the 1970s and 1980s, especially on the drawings from the 1980s, initiated by a notable group of coloured pastels that Rotella called Paesaggi (Landscapes). There is no link between these drawings and the increasingly complex inflections of what might be called his 'official' production that he was showing, by now throughout the whole world, in numerous exhibitions that became ever more prestigious. Work that, from the Artypo of the late 1960s to early 1970s, led to the Frottages, the Effacages and then to the Blanks. Because now Rotella has matured the idea that drawing is an essentially private act that secretly accompanies certain moments and certain passages of his existence, rather than being preparatory to another work.
