The Museum of Avant-garde

Luigi Veronesi

Italy (1908—1998)
After studying art in Italy, Veronesi travelled to Paris where he met Léger and discovered the Dutch and Russian Constructivism. This led him to abandon figurative art to investigate abstract geometries and the relationship between colours and music. In 1934 he joined Abstraction-Création and soon after started to collaborate with the magazine Campo grafico. From 1935 he dedicated himself to photography, experimenting with different techniques such as solarisation and photomontage. He wrote 14 Variazioni di un tema pittorico and created stage sets for La Scala theatre. He also taught at the Accademia di Brera until 1977.
