Biography

A painter. He joined the anti-Fascist movement in 1935 and his art moved towards a form of realism that aimed to represent the present and convey moral commitment, inspired by nineteenth-century realism, and by Picasso's Guernica and popular art. From 1940 to 1942 he was a leading exponent of the Milanese "Corrente" movement (Crucifixion, 1941). In 1947 he was one of the founders of the Fronte Nuovo delle Arti and he became an exponent of social realism, circumventing its dry propaganda policies from the late 1950s by renovating his own artistic style and drawing on a whole range of new cultural elements.
