Description

Painter, sculptor, set designer, costume designer, complete and eclectic post-World War II artist, Corrado Cagli's art is known throughout Europe. An artistic personality, characterized by a versatility of styles and a mastery in the most diverse fields of artistic expression, have made Cagli the subject of study and critical analysis by renowned historians, scholars, poets and essayists.

The work Buglione of 1971 recalls the concept of abstract figuration, to which the artist dedicated himself after the war, made up of modular and mathematical repetitions, of corpuscles that challenge the two-dimensionality of the painting. The geometric structures extend into space in a continuous game of concave and convex, giving the illusion of a three-dimensional figure. The circles that make up the figure recall the legendary armor of a medieval chivalry to the observer's mind and refer to the hauberk, the firm structure of a metal mesh, typical of medieval warriors.

In fact, the title of the work itself evokes the legendary figure of Godfrey of Bouillon, a fundamental character of the First Crusade, reducing it to a deformed mask.
