Description
 
Medium: lithograph and mixed media, containing an actual piece of folded newspaper glued to the surface of the print. The paper itself has a number of die-cut holes of different size (and was photographed against a white background). Executed for the second volume (1956-57) of the very rare Documenti d'Arte d'Oggi, published in Milan by Groupe Espace. The total sheet measures 12 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches (318 x 220mm). Not signed.

Documenti d'Arte d'Oggi was an ongoing project of the Concrete Art Movement (Movimento arte concreta). This important portfolio consisted of original silkscreens, serigraphs, lithographs, woodcuts and linoleum cuts on various types of paper, compiled into an annual album from 1954-1958. Among the artists represented in this issue were: Enrico Bordoni, Angelo Bozzola, Guiseppe Capogrossi, Galliano Mazzon, Aagaard Andersen, Gianni Monnet, Mario Nigro, Sandro Pessina, Vivaldo Poli, Carol Rama, Regina, Manlio Rho, Nino Di Salvatore, Emilio Scanavino, Gillo Dorfles, Tito Varisco, Luigi Veronesi, Bruno Munari and Simonetta Vigevani Jung. Original prints by most of these artists are rare.
