About Composizione in Azzurro

“Composizione in Azzurro,” created by Alberto Magnelli in 1965, is a quintessential piece of abstract art from the mid-20th century. This artwork, characterized by its abstract genre, exhibits the attributes of the art movement which seeks to engage viewers through forms, colors, and textures rather than representational subjects.

The artwork presents a juxtaposition of geometric forms and a restrained color palette dominated by various tones of blue, with the titular azzurro likely referring to the shades of blue employed. These forms are arranged in a manner that creates an illusion of depth and movement, while the use of sharp lines and contrasting colors adds to the dynamic feel of the piece. Diagonal stripes within some of the geometric shapes provide a rhythmic pattern, contributing to the cohesion of the composition. The artwork achieves a balance between the calculated precision of the outlined shapes and the free play of colors and forms, emblematic of the abstract movement’s exploration of visual language independent from reality.
