Gerardo Dottori coming to London

Lake Dawn, 1942Gerardo Dottori: The Futurist View

July 9 – September 7, 2014
Estorick Collection

Gerardo Dottori (1884-1977) was one of the pivotal figures of Italian Futurism during the inter-war years. His expansive and intensely lyrical visions of the Umbrian landscape, viewed from above, were among the earliest and most striking examples of ‘aeropainting’, distinguished by their meditative character and concentration on rural imagery.

This major exhibition provides an overview of the work of this fascinating artist, encompassing not only the renowned flight-related paintings, but also his initial Divisionist works and later experimentation with abstract imagery.
