  • Paolo Cotani

    The 51 works in this retrospective exhibition bear witness to Paolo Cotani’s perseverance in his ambitious undertaking. For while each work has its own specific significance, they are also each part of a series or phase of his development. The support (canvas, lead, aluminum, paper, or wood) has a value of its own, just as the medium, the color, and the sign have other values. Lo chiameró Giulietto (I will call him Giulietto, 1987), a painting from the series entitled “Della tigre” (Of the tiger, 1985–87) is emblematic in this regard. In a large square format, blue and pink play off one another
