Francesco Clemente

Come face to face with Francesco Clemente’s fascinating self-portraits.

The Italian-American artist Francesco Clemente (b. 1952) is one of the main representatives of the postmodern Transavantgarde and Arte Cifra, the Italian version of Neo-Expressionism. Among his extensive oeuvre, the publication focuses on Clemente’s major works series.

Clemente’s life spent in Europe, India, and New York has lent a remarkably multifaceted quality to both his art and his character. Indian culture and philosophy as well as the human body are recurring themes rendered in his figurative, Neo-Expressionist style. This volume guides readers through Clemente’s pastels, watercolors, gouaches, and printed graphics, including such major series as The Departure of the Argonaut, the From the Terreiro pastels, the Amalfi watercolors, and The Tarots, as well as his self-portraits, which have a quality all their own.
