Certificate of authenticity by Archivio Bonalumi no. 65-005C
As recently specified via e-mail by the Archivio Bonalumi on May 15, 2018, this work was actually applied to canvas by the artist, who conceived it according to "a typology of works of which a very small number was made". In essence, as stated in the relative documentation, it's a rare embossed paper on raw canvas prepared by the artist. Inside you can feel the "solid" embossing obtained by pressing the paper, applied to the raw canvas after having wet them.
The Archivio Bonalumi writes it is very likely that there are only 5 works realized in this way. Work published in the catalog "Agostino Bonalumi carta canta”, by Lorenza Trucchi, Galleria Il Bulino, Roma, Edizioni il Bulino, Roma, 2003, p.8
