The last Bendini (2000-2013)

Vasco Bendini, one of the greatest artists of the second half of the twentieth century, is commemorated by an exhibition - staged in the exhibition spaces of the ground floor in the historical site of the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca, that the exhibition promoted and ordered in collaboration with the Bendini Archive of Rome - which traces, a year after his death, his last work, through about 40 works of great size.

A work that on the one hand bears witness to the faithfulness of Bendini to the theme of the sign and of light, through which he has based his painting at the beginning of the fifties - when all the criticism most careful to the new, from Arcangeli to Calvesi, from Emiliani to Barilli, from Tassi to Argan, felt the “candid, lonely birthright” in a story that was moving beyond the informal, towards the abstract. On the other hand, though always faithful to his fundamental vocations, Bendini made his research more involved in the last time, finding a light that has become more and more agitated and dramatic.

Of his latest work, never exhibited before with this width, the exhibition gives an account, after a positive response from the public and critics recorded in New York, at the R H Contemporary Art Gallery, in one recent output.

Scientific committee: M. Bendini, F. D'Amico, C. Lorenzetti, F. Moschini, R. Zuccaro.
