The enchanted realism of an artist

Gianfilippo Usellini (Milan, 1903 - Arona, 1971) attended the Brera Academy where, from 1960 onwards, he taught composition. Immersed in the climate of the 20th century, he conceived a subtly ironic language blending suggestions from Metaphysical painting with the stylistic hallmarks of the 15th century (the frescos in the Government building in Sondrio, 1932; in the Baptistery of Broni, 1936; the stained glass windows of the church of the “Nuovo Ospedale Maggiore di Milano” [Polyclinic Hospital of Milan], 1939; and so on). Usellini also worked as an illustrator and set designer. The Municipal Galleries of Modern Art of Rome and Milan currently display his works.
