    The Flageolet is an original artwork realized by Valerio Adami during the 1990s. Serigraph. Hand-signed "Adami" and numbered on the lower margin. Edition 97 of 150 prints.
    Dimensions: cm 70 x 90.

    The serigraph shows a flageolet in front of a yellow seaside, in the iconographic and comics style of the artist. Valerio Adami (Bologna, 1935-), an artist internationally recognized for his seductively rich and psychologically complex paintings.

    He started from an expressionist painting influenced by the work of Francis Bacon and then he approached to the abstract visual idioms of Pop Art with its cartoonish imagery, flatness, and eye-popping colors. His artistic life was deeply marked by the metting with the painters Roberto Sebastián Antonio Matta and Wilfredo Lam, who inspired and encouraged him to develop his talents.

    Adami’s works are layered with meanings: he uses potent imagery to symbolize specific themes, painting a lake to represent the subconscious or a woman in a boat to refer to the passage of life. Erotic motifs have been a constant theme in his fertile production: women and loving couples in their most intimate moments, captured in mythically saturated shades, in evocative deep reds and a myriad shades of blue. His works are exhibited in the most important museums all over the world: London, New York, Venice, Chicago, Rome, Washington, Paris, Tokyo).

Valerio Adami

Italy Born in: 1935 Masterpieces

Valerio Adami is in Italian painter born on March 17, 1935 in the Italian city of Bologna. He is famous for his pintings with surfaces of flashy outlined by thick black lines, reminding of comics. He divides his time between France and Italy.

Adami was educated at Academy Brera in Milan between 1952 and 1954. He traveled to paris for the first time in 1955, where he met Roberto Matta. His first solo exhibition came in 1957 in Milan, with works inspired by Matta's surrealism.

In the late '60s, he became part of the Nouvelle Figuration (New Figuration) movement. Adami began to address politics in his art, and incorporated subject matter such as modern European history, literature, philosophy, and mythology. Adami's artworks were expressionistic, but around the time of his second exhibition in 1964 at Kassel, he had developed a style of painting reminiscent of French cloisonnism, featuring regions of flat colour bordered by black lines. The artist subjects were highly stylized and often presented in fragments, as seen in Telescoping Rooms.
