Description

Composition by Enrico Prampolini is a particularly significant painting, useful for describing the path of the Modenese artist and documenting the cultural environment (that of Milan after World War II) in which the work was born. In fact, the painting, as an abstract-concrete composition, expresses a series of values linked to chromatic and formal relationships, broken by the insistence of a more fluid and dynamic sign element. The work, as Gillo Dorfles himself wrote on the occasion of the VI Quadrennial in Rome in 1955, "therefore seeks changing and varied forms but in continuous and progressive metamorphosis, on the one hand; on the other hand, the search for a realization of timbral values through the study and use of appropriate pictorial materials ". Prampolini's painting, in this phase of his activity, is linked to the abstract formulations expressed since the thirties by groups such as "Cercle et Carré" and the more important "Abstraction Création" to which the artist himself adhered since 1930. then, recovering the researches prior to the war years, he comes into contact with the Milanese concrete environment, reaching the point of joining the MAC. Prampolini's work, however, has its roots in previous decades, having frequented the Roman futurist environment since 1913. The painter is then fundamental for the theorization, 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 activity of set designer that the artist constantly developed throughout his life. Dancer in movement, a work of 1935, on loan at the museum within the Ferrazzi Collection is also linked to the Second Futurism.
