In 1973, a printmaking studio in Venice – Centro Internazionale Della Grafica Venezia – commissioned nineteen artists to respond to Venice. The portfolio, titled Venice Yesterday Today Tomorrow, brings together senior Italian artists. Disparate in style and philosophy, these works present a portal into the lineage, tensions and desires of Venice, once the heart of Western art.

Armando Pizzinato’s ‘Untitled (Abstract Mountain Range)’ is a tranquil, graceful work. In a pastel palette, he follows the curvatures of Italy – the air is light, spring is here. Pizzinato was influenced by Picasso, Matisse and Cezanne. He pursued art whole-heartedly, holding his first solo exhibition in Venice in 1941 – a dedication to Venice and rejection of fascism.

Pizzinato is represented at the Peggy Guggenheim and New York’s Museum of Modern Art, where he exhibited in 1949. Retrospectives of his work have been held at the Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg and the Correr Museum, Venice. In 1991, he published a book about his hometown, lamenting its architectural and natural decline. For collectors of twentieth century art, this Italian landscape will delight.
