Another favorite of Rudi Fuchs was Carol Rama, A Turin born artist.
An Italian self-taught artist whose unconventional painting encompassed an erotic, and often sexually aggressive universe populated by characters who present themes of sexual identity with specific references to female sensuality. Her work was relatively little known until curator Lea Vergine included several pieces in a 1980 exhibition, prompting Rama to revisit her earlier watercolour style. This is the time Fuchs noticed her qualities and presented her in 2 separate exhibitions in the Stedelijk Museum. The importance of Rama must not be undersestimated , because she had contact and knew artists like Warhol, Bunuel and Man Ray. NOt being influenced by them but inspired she developed a style and art of her own , for which she was rewarded isn 2005 with a large retropective exhibition in the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in her birthplace of Turin. A great artist who is also present in the inventory of www.ftn-books.com.
