64 B/3 Verdaccio

Code: 30613




Photo-certificate signed by the artist dated 1972, with notarized statement of authenticity from artist's brother Dino Basaldella dated 1975. The work and the photo certificate are archived in the Afro Foundation Archive in Rome, as confirmed by email from the Foundation itself.

High quality work by Afro Basaldella dated 1964, accompanied by an old photo certificate signed by the artist and by notarized statement of the artist's brother Dino dated 1975. The photo certificate specifies that the paper was laid down on canvas by the artist and this definition befits the present work because Afro painted it in oil only after applying the newspaper collage onto the canvas. Obviously this diversifies its artistic and commercial value compared to a “common” mixed media on paper.
