Amadeo Luciano Lorenzato

Untitled (X)

Considered the seminal artist of his generation, Amadeo Luciano Lorenzato was drawn to the natural world and symbols of daily life. Largely a self-taught painter, Lorenzato developed a singular body of paintings centered on his fastidious observations of the everyday subjects he encountered in his hometown of Belo Horizonte, Brazil; depicting landscapes, still lives, and scenes from his neighborhood His aim was not to replicate his environment, but rather to translate it through a simplified vision of reduced geometric forms utilizing rich, handmade pigments and defined brush strokes. Lorenzato considered painting an everyday activity, a natural extension of himself, and “a form of spiritual survival.”

Brazilian artist’s Amadeo Luciano Lorenzato’s ( 1900 – 1995) work has been presented in numerous solo and group shows, including a large retrospective exhibition at the Museu de Arte da Pampulha, Belo Horizonte, in 1995. His most recent shows include S|2 Gallery, London (2019); David Zwirner, London (2019); Mendes Wood DM, New York (2019); Galeria Estação, São Paulo (2014), Bergamin & Gomide, São Paulo (2014). His work is also in a number of public collections, such as Fundação Clóvis Salgado, Belo Horizonte; Museu de Arte da Pampulha, Belo Horizonte; Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP); Nouveau Musée National de Monaco; Pinacoteca de São Paulo, and Universidade Federal de Viçosa.
