Catalogue Note

The Italian painter Guilio D'Anna was famous for his Aeropittura style, a branch of Futurism present in the years following the First World War. A major expression of the second generation of Italian Futurism, Aeropittura was inspired by the technological exhilaration of flight, bringing to the forefront the subject matter of aeroplanes and aerial landscape, of which new perspectival realities could be explored.
