64th Auction of Local Art from Friuli Venezia Giulia

3rd Session: local Art from Friuli Venezia Giulia

Framed

“Scena agreste” (“Rural scene”), rare work by Dora Bassi in glazed ceramic, created in 1967 on commission of the Cassa di Risparmio di Trieste, where it had been on display for many years before returning to the Bassi family Collection. In a delicate balance between classical and modern, the bas-relief was made during the most prolific period of the great Friulian artist ( Demetra of '69 and Folla of '68 belong to the same period), who was professor of Sculpture at Brera Academy in Milan for many years together with Dino Basaldella, the sculptor from Udine. Two bas-reliefs by Dora Bassi same period, same dimensions and same material are exhibited to this day in the Church of St. Andrew in Gorizia.

3rd Session: local Art from Friuli Venezia Giulia

Framed

Brazzano, 1960, work created during the transition period from Neorealism to Abstractism (1960-1965). No longer a representation of things but a vital action, featured by vigorous marks and gestures impressed into the matter. “This is the Friuli I see, I love, that has given me everything and has always inspired me”, as the artist herself would say. High quality work coming from the private Collection of the Bassi Family.

Work exhibited at the Triveneta Art Biennial. Minor signs of mold spots.
