50 years of work by Antonio Calderara celebrated in Hamburg
10 February 2018
The Ernst Barlach House in Hamburg, Germany presents 'Antonio Calderara – Light Spaces. Painting from Fifty Years', a showcase of the Italian artist's works from 1927–1977, highlighting his gradual path towards abstraction.
The works of Antonio Calderara (1903–1978) are known for their finest nuances of colour and obsession with light. The paintings on view in Hamburg are evidence of a remarkable development in Calderara's practice, illustrating his move from figurative painting to a more abstract picture plane over the course of fifty years.
This focus is the subject of Lisson Gallery's inaugural exhibition of the artist's work, 'Painting Infinity', on view at 67 Lisson Street, London until 17 February 2018.
'Antonio Calderara – Light Spaces. Painting from Fifty Years' runs from 11 February until 3 June 2018. Please visit the museum's website for more information on the exhibition.
