    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    The Waiter is an original Contemporary artwork realized by the Italian Contemporary artist Mimmo Rotella (Catanzaro, 1918 – Milan, 2006) in 1987. Original China Ink on paper. Hand-signed and dated by the artist in pencil on the lower left corner: Rotella 87.
    The Waiter is an interesting drawing, a China ink on paper that depicts the figure of a waiter while is clearing a table set. The work has been realized with very fresh and rapid strokes of black china ink. Perhaps best known for his Décollages made of distressed street posters ripped from the walls of Rome, Mimmo Rotella is a pioneer of the Pop Art movement, who worked simultaneously with Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg.

Mimmo Rotella

Italy Born in: 1918 Masterpieces
Mimmo Rotella (Domenico Rotella), (born Oct. 7, 1918, Catanzaro, Italy - died Jan. 8, 2006, Milan, Italy), is an Italian artist who was best known for his extravagant “double décollages,” which he crafted by ripping posters (particularly movie advertisements) off exterior walls, attaching the fragments to canvases, and then tearing off smaller pieces from the posters to create colourful, often amusing, collages.

Mimmo Rotella was the only Italian artist formally linked to the French Nouveau Réalistes artists, with whom he exhibited in the 1960s. Rotella studied art in Naples and held a Fulbright scholarship (1951–52) at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, where he was admired for his experimental “phonetic” poetry.

He returned to Italy in 1953 and abandoned painting for his signature décollages and assemblages, into which he incorporated textiles and other materials. Later he experimented with acrylic paint and photographic elements. Rotella lived in Paris in the 1960s and ’70s, but in 1980 he settled in Milan.
