About Waiting

The artwork titled “Waiting” was created by Francesco Clemente in 1982. It is a figurative watercolor on Arches paper, measuring 14 x 20 inches (35.7 x 50.8 cm). This piece is associated with the Transavantgarde movement and is held in the collection of Thomas Ammann in Zurich.

“Waiting” by Francesco Clemente presents a compelling visual experience. It features a depiction of a figure, centrally placed, with an intense gaze that confronts the viewer. The figure’s elongated arms and strikingly large hands rest on what appears to be a surface in front of them, suggesting a pose of contemplation or anticipation. The color palette is composed of muted tones, with a predominance of soft pinks and greys that create a certain ethereal or dreamlike quality. Background elements, consisting of circular patterns or spots, contribute to a sense of depth and may imply a psychological or atmospheric context surrounding the figure. The facial expression is somewhat enigmatic, which enhances the interpretive possibilities of the artwork and aligns with the traits of the Transavantgarde movement, known for revitalizing figurative art and embracing diverse artistic traditions and personal symbolism.
