Alberto Sughi - Artist Biography

Alberto Sughi - Artist Biography

Alberto Sughi was born in Cesena in 1928 but has been living in Rome for some time. Considered to be one of the maior Italian artists of the generation that appeared at the beginning of the Fifties, Sughi was the leading exponent of this figurative pictorial era in which "Existential Realism" was spoken about.

His work quickly attracted the attention of art critics, causing a significant convergence of eminent scholars and essayists, even though of diverse orientations, and was presented in the most important collections of Contemporary Art, from the Rome Quadriennale to the Venice Biennale, as well as in many other exhibitions, showing to other countries abroad what was happening in Italian Art from the Sixties until now.

His search has proceeded, in a fairly constant manner, towards thematic cycles which have the feeling of cinematic sequences: from 1970-73 there were the so-called "green pictures", dedicated to the relationship between Man and Nature; from 1975-76 there was the cycle "The Supper"; the twenty paintings and the fifteen studies of Imagination and Memories of the Family" belong to the beginning of the Eighties; the series "Evening or Reflection" which represents the reflection of the artist concerning his role and the value of existence in the context of the contemporary world dates from 1985. At the beginning of the Nineties another cycle was given the significant title "Going whither?" "Night-time" ("Notturno") is his latest work.
