Concetto spaziale (1947)
With “Concetto spaziale” (1947), Lucio Fontana develops a style of abstract art in which the nature of the support is more important than the choice of colors. The sculptor perforates and scratches the material in order to unveil a new dimension to the object. As is the case with “Concetto spaziale”, Lucio Fontana generally preferred working with terracotta. This example of abstract art is exhibited in Paris, a stone’s throw from the Louvre and the place Vendôme.
