Photo L'Atelier De Grandi
Imaginary snapshot of a familiar female gesture.
For this nude Italo chooses the sanguine which allows him not only a rendering combining a minimal line with delicate, almost pictorial hatching, but also to give a certain warmth of tone to the intimacy of this scene.
In the crucible of his quest within reality, Italo reconnects with the imagination of his youth, using here the sanguine: he continues his contemplation of the female body by exalting its coherence and freedom, as well as its human fragility.
