Leonardo Delfino ( 1928)

If an artist has not acquired the fame he deserves it is hard to make his name more known at the end of his career. This is why i support any initiative to help the artist. Leonardo Delfino is such an artist. He rose to sdome fame at the end of the Fifties amnd early Sixties ( this is the period i last discussed in an earlier blog) and had an important exhibition at galerie Delta in 1971 ( catalogue available at http://www.ftn-books.com), but after some dutch and french exhibitions it was quiet, with hardly any exhibitions outside Italy and France. Born in Torino he soon went to France to help his career further on, but is stayed relatively quiet with hardly any exhibitions being held. This doe not mean his work is not interesting. His scupltures are timeless abstract colums or pieces of raising /concrete. I thinh he uses the same procedure to create his sculptures as Mmark Boyle does. Using the original to cast a raisin copy from it.

look for Delfino on the internet and there is hardly any information, but there is a facebook site worth visiting at: https://www.facebook.com/Delfinoproject

Some early Delfino publications are available at www.ftn-books.com
