Description

Composition by Enrico Prampolini is a particularly significant painting, useful to describe the path of the Modenese artist and to document the cultural environment (that of Milan in the second post-war period) in which the work was born. The painting, in fact, as an abstract-concrete composition, expresses a series of values ​​linked to chromatic and formal relationships, broken by the insistence of a sign element, more fluid and dynamic. The work, as Gillo Dorfles himself wrote on the occasion of the VI Quadrennial of Rome in 1955, “therefore searches for changing and varied forms but in continuous and progressive metamorphosis, on the one hand; from the other research of a realization of timbre values ​​through the study and use of appropriate pictorial materials ". Prampolini's painting, in this phase of his activity, is linked to abstract formulations expressed since the thirties by groups such as "Cercle et Carré" and the most important "Abstraction Création" to which the artist himself adhered since 1930. From 1948 to then, recovering the research prior to the war years, he came into contact with the Milanese concrete environment, arriving until his accession to the MAC. The work of Prampolini, however, has its roots in the previous decades, since the artist frequented the Roman futurist environment since 1913. The painter is then fundamental for the theory, after the First World War, of the Second Futurism through the publication of several posters, among which we recall The Futurist Scenic Atmosphere (1924) in relation to the prolific set designer activity that the artist developed constantly throughout his life. Linked to the Second Futurism also Ballerina in movement, a 1935 work, loaned to the museum inside the Ferrazzi Collection.
