Born 1904, in Loreto; died 1992, in Milan.

Painter. Still-lifes.

Attilio Alfieri began to paint under the dual influence of Cubism and Futurism. Around 1930 he experimented also with the collage technique. Afterwards he went through a period of Classical Representation, and then evolved in the direction of an informal, material Abstraction. Thick and generous materials are fairly constant throughout his many different periods. This is particularly true of his Representational art and can be observed in the skilful brushwork of his series of vegetable still-lifes....

Swiss, 20th century, male.

Born 23 April 1882, in Pforzheim; died 1961, in Geneva.

Painter. Nudes, landscapes, portraits, still-lifes.

Alexandre Blanchet worked initially in Paris. Although his painting exhibits Expressionist, Fauvist and Cubist influences, it is clear that he was greatly influenced by the work of Cézanne in particular. This is most evident in his paintings of traditional Swiss themes, which are executed in a decidedly Post-Impressionist style. His forceful treatment of volume and space and his accomplished and evocative use of blocks of colour impart a sense of Cézanne-like 'sculpture' to his work. This similarity is intensified by his technique of painting parallel lines in different shades of the same colour, a feature of ...

He exhibited several times at the national museum of modern art in Buenos Aires, particularly in ...
