Discover Manzoni’s Mesmeric Monochromes


Piero Manzoni’s brief yet prolific career is widely seen to have anticipated the birth of Conceptual Art. In this episode of Sotheby’s Stories, discover how his ‘Achrome’ series sought to re-evaluate the role of the artist in a post-war world and how his experimentation with everyday materials created a completely new visual language. Four of Manzoni’s ‘Achrome’ series feature in our upcoming Contemporary Art Evening Auction(October 3 | London). Click here to watch more Sotheby’s videos.
