Angelo Savelli: Basically White & Dialogues

22 January - 25 March 2016

M&L Fine Art is proud to present the first UK exhibition of works by Angelo Savelli. Eleven seminal paintings are shown alongside pieces by Enrico Castellani, Lucio Fontana, Robert Ryman, Salvatore Scarpitta and Jan Schoonhoven, artists with whom Savelli shared a common aesthetic language. He was a pioneer in developing the monochromatic palette that would be adopted by many of his contemporaries and as early as 1957 he began creating works using white as the only pigment. ‘Basically White’ aims to demonstrate the impact his work had on a generation of artists who were practising in America and Europe during the 1960s and 70s. A bilingual catalogue with texts by Guido Ballo, Piero Dorazio, James Harithas and Louis Kahn accompanies the exhibition.
