A quintessential painters of early 20th century Italy

This catalogue presents the complete paintings of the years 1914-1959 by Pompeo Borra (Milan 1898-1973), one of the first generation of 20th-century Italian artists. Ordered chronologically and based on critical study of archival documents and materials, the catalogue raisonné describes more than seven hundred paintings in detail accompanied by sections dedicated to the abstract compositions, the frescoes, and exclusive archival documents. The historical-critical review of Borra's work ranges from the initial Primitivism through Magical Realism, the purist synthesis of the Novecento movement, the sedate monumentalism of the 1930s, and the subsequent connections with Abstract art and the Realist movement, up to his personal neo-metaphysical work of the 1950s.
