ANDREA DE STEFANI
CAPRICCIO 2000


OPENING OCTOBER 10TH 2018, 7 PM
UNTIL NOVEMBER 9TH

VIA PRIVATA REZIA, 2 - MILAN




The Capriccio is a painting style simultaneously developing with vedutism and became appreciated in Italy at the end of the 17th century, particularly through the landscape painters coming from the Veneto aerea. The paintings attributable to this genre are real mash-up of imaginary architectures, ruins and illusory perspectives, often mixed with elements coming from real life.
With Capriccio 2000, Andrea De Stefani expands the horizon traced by the fundamental assumptions of the ancient Vedute Ideate, creating an environment where ordinary shapes, freely drawn from the present urban fabric, are remixed, recomposed, sublimed.
