About the artist:

Born in Rosario, in the province of Santa Fe, Argentina, in 1899, to Italian immigrant parents, Lucio Fontana spent the first years of his life in Milan, enrolling at a school of engineering in 1914. Returning to Argentina in 1922, he worked in his father's sculpture studio before opening one of his own in 1924. Towards the end of the 1920s, he went back to Italy to study at the Accademia di Brera, as a student of sculptor Adolfo Wildt, for two years. From 1939, he lived in Argentina again, and, after settling in Buenos Aires in 1940, Fontana became a teacher at the Altamira art school. During this period, he worked on the Manifiesto Blanco, in which he called for a synthesis of the arts and the abolition of conventional materials, propagating the dimensions of time and movement in space instead. In 1947, Lucio Fontana returned to Milan, where he founded the „Movimento spaziale“ group of artists, published two manifestos of Spazialismo, and went on to become one of the most distinguished avant-garde artists of the first post-war generation. He died in 1968.
