Let Sheer Folly Sweep Me Away

Published by Marsilio Editori.
Edited by Luca Massimo Barbero. Text by Chiara Mari, Federica Pirani, Sileno Salvagnini.

Departing from his earlier figurative works and engagement with Futurist ideals, Italian painter Osvaldo Licini (1894–1958) turned away from realism in 1940 and painted only abstract works from then on. His paintings from that fruitful decision engage in a surrealist language of precise lines, solid colors and pregnant signs; colors and signs that Licini viewed as expressions of energy, willpower, ideas and magic. This catalog of Licini's show at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, the most comprehensive monograph of his work, marks the 60th anniversary of his death. That same year, Licini won the National Grand Prize for Painting at the 29th Venice Biennale, where he had shown 53 works—executed between 1925 and 1958—in a room of his own, mounted by Carlo Scarpa. This catalog gathers his complete works, including those displayed in that same venue 60 years prior to this 2018 show.
