Riccardo Tommasi Ferroni (1934-2000)

He was a leading post-modern Italian figure painter throughout the latter part of the twentieth-century.  Ferroni's paintings combine classical themes and subjects from the Renaissance in surreal discontinuous spaces that stylistically resemble the works of DeChirico, Dali and DuChamp.  In contrast to their works, Ferroni's paintings are politically charged.  Ferroni`s surreal compositions were pivotal to the resurgence of figurative painting in the early 1980s.   Abstract existential art, void of figural or classical narratives, dominated the Italian art scene following World War II.  Ferroni's works were inspirational to the following generation of artists looking to reintegrate the past within a modern dialogue. 

Ferroni's paintings have been exhibited and collected throughout museums and institutions in Europe and in the U.S. cities New York, Newport and Los Angeles.  He was elected a member of the prestigious Accademia Romana di San Luca in 1982, and is recognized in prominent art history textbooks on Italian art such as Antonio Del Guercio's Storia dell'Arte Presente (1998).
