Just take a mixing bowl and put in it a dash of the early Mondrian, a pinch of Hodler and some part of the Scandinavian 20th century artists and presto….there he is ETTORE BURZI. Rooted within the art deco movement he produced some great paintings in the first part of the 20th century.

I like his landscapes in which he approaches the quality of some of the greatest paintings by Klimt ,Hodler and Mondrian ( de Rode Wolk by Mondrian on the right), he also stayed true to his origins since he also made some great paintings of Venice in which he catches this dreamlike s city on canvas.

For those who are not familiar with Burzi, http://www.ftn-books.com has the 2010 Ticino catalogue now available.burzi
