Description

The artistic activity of Augusto Colombo is part of the stormy period following the First World War during which artists tried to return to the taste for simple things, where the human face and the landscape arouse a desire for study and research.
It was in this period that Colombo began to create some particular works, characterized by the centrality of the images and the care of chromatic pleasures. After a few trips to Florence, Rome and Paris, a preference for drawing and composition values can be observed in his art. In his works an attention to human architecture and an extremely essential language begins to stand out, which in reality communicates a more complex content.

In 1938 the painter created La laminatura and its related preparatory drawings, which were donated in 2000 to Si.MUL
The painting depicts one of the iron working phases, forging, a typical activity linked to the history and working traditions of the Lecco area. Men, with the expression of their fatigue, are the protagonists of the composition, crossed by the incandescent and sinuous line of iron. In the painting, aesthetic values thus merge with a profound human content, as in almost all of Augusto Colombo's art.

Location: room 7
