Franco Fontana is one of the most famous contemporary Italian photographers, considered one of the pioneers of the colour format. Best-known for his abstract colour landscapes, he is credited as the inventor of the photographic line, often referred to as ‘the concept of line’. His bold use of colour has earned him comparisons with painters such as Newman, Rothko, and de Staël. Later critics have labelled Fontana’s unique and vibrant language of colour-interplay the Photographic Trans-avantgarde. He explored various subjects: urban landscapes, portraiture, fashion, still-life and the nude. He worked with 35mm cameras, mostly on location, claiming that his studio was the world. This print is book mounted and sits in a beautiful black frame. Total framed dimensions are 63.5 x 47.5 x 4 cm. Other works are available by this artist, to see a wider selection please contact us.
