Carlo Maria Mariani is internationally renowned for his inimitable style, unique vision, and unparalleled technical skill. One of the most original and challenging artists of the second half of the twentieth century, Mariani continues to produce provocative and groundbreaking works that could very well change the course of art in the twenty-first century.†
An artist attuned with his time, Mariani demonstrates a deep understanding of artís venerable past while he embodies the avant-garde in painting today.†
Intriguing, suggestive, and well-written, this monograph includes an in-depth essay by the critic David Ebony plus insightful introductory texts by art-world experts and critics Robert Pincus-Witten and Italo Tomassoni, which situate Marianiís work at the pinnacle of contemporary painting.
Carol Lane is Mariani archivist and curator. David Ebony is Art in Americaís editor and critic. Robert Pincus-Witten is an art gallery director, critic, and modernist art historian. The curator Italo Tommasoni held the chair of art history at the Academy in Perugia until 2001.
