DONATION OF DRAWINGS TO THE UFFIZI’S DRAWINGS AND ENGRAVINGS COLLECTION

D.5.6096A_bassa def

Four important drawings of the sculptor Francesco Somaini now belong to the Collection of Drawings and Engravings of the Uffizi Gallery.  Ink on paper dated 1965, they are all part of the “Metamorphosis” series, last phase of the informal season of the sculptor, when the artist looks for new expressive ways for his plastic activity and, at the same time, experiments new drawing techniques, such as these original interpretations of “lavis” technique.
Gift of Luisa Somaini.
