The current highest auction record for a similar work by Schifano is €24,000 In the early seventies, Schifano began transferring television screens on canvases. By doing so, Schifano took out the scene from its original narrative sequence and its context. He changed the image even more, by processing it at the computer, transferring it in the digital photo silkscreen technique on canvas, covered with emulsion, and painting it with acrylic paint. The present work is titled ‘Naturale televisivo’’’’’’’’ [Television Landscape] and depicts a view of an open landscape with trees and meadows. The upper and lower right features the logos of the TV station Rai Uno, the main Italian public television channel.The work is signed in felt pen with ‘Schifano’’’’’’’’ to the reverse. On the stretcher, there is a label of the Fondazione Mario Schifano with the inventory number ‘90/97/193’’’’’’’’. The work is in good condition, showing light abrasion to the margins. The black wooden frame shows slight traces of use. The dimensions of the image are 100 x 140 cm, and the frame measures 119.5 x 160 cm. The work comes with a certificate of authenticity by the Fondazione Mario Schifano dated 2003.Mario Schifano (1934-1998) Mario Schifano was born in Libya in 1934. His first works were monochromatic images in which the artist later introduced emblems of popular culture such as billboards, road signs and Coca Cola logos. In 1962, he travelled to the US, where he met artists such as Frank O'Hara, Jasper Johns, Rothko and Warhol. In the same year he participated in the legendary exhibition ‘International Exhibition of the New Realists’’’’’’’’ in the Gallery of Sidney Janis alongside iconic American pop artists. Back in Italy, he regularly exhibited his work in Rome, Paris and Milan. In 1964 and 1978, he participated in the Venice Biennale. In addition, Schifano worked as a filmmaker since the mid-1960s, made music and periodically turned away from painting. From the 1970s, he primarily worked with television images, which he mounted on canvas and reworked with color. These motifs were recurring in the artist’’’’’’’’s work until the late 1990s. In addition, Schifano created an extensive oeuvre of prints.

Description:
Mario Schifano (1934-1998) N° 2 dagli Archivi del Futurismo signed, titled and dated ‘Schifano 1965 “N° 2 dagli Archivi del Futurismo”’’’’’’’’ (on the reverse) enamel and graphite on canvas 63 3/8 x 45 ¼ in. (160 x 115 cm.) Executed in 1965. This work is recorded in the Archivio Mario Schifano, Rome, under no. 03218160920 and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Mario Schifano came onto the Italian art scene of the early 1960s with striking monochromatic works that attracting the attention of critics, as well as the famed gallerist, Ileana Sonnabend. Soon after, he would be included in exhibitions like the seminal 1962 exhibition, New Realists, alongside Yves Klein, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein at the Sidney Janis Gallery, New York. It was at this time that his practice took a decidedly new direction. He would reject the austere, reduced aesthetic of his monochromes to instead embrace figuration and develop a uniquely Italian approach to Pop art. Media images flooded Schifano’’’’’’’’s native Rome after World War II. Unlike his Pop counterparts in the United States, whose country was then less than two centuries old, Schifano was surrounded by the rich cultural heritage of Italy in plain view as well as reflected back in tourist advertisements. Schifano use these signs and symbols from the consumer landscape and would appropriate images from Ancient Rome through Renaissance and the Futurists of the early twentieth-century from the cultural world. It is from this period that works such as Schifano’’’’’’’’s N° 2 dagli Archivi del Futurismo comes. Italian Futurists like Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni and Gino Severini valorized industry, the machine, progress, and speed and their paintings and sculptures often implied movement. Schifano evokes such dynamism. The left side of the canvas features an outline of a leg from knee to shoe repeated in overlapping succession of drawn marks that suggests motion. The leg has been fragmented from the rest of the body, which has been hidden behind a stacked bands of color. Black, grey, orange, white and navy are painted in an array of textures in a number of brushstrokes. Arranged on the right side of the canvas, these colors resemble the flag of an imaginary nation. Where American Pop cast a cool, distanced view of the banality of popular culture, Schifano instead highlights the radicality of the Futurists and their influence on Italian society. Schifano would continue to look to the Futurists for the subject of his painting until the mid-1970s. Then, he would appropriate a photograph taken on February 9, 1912 of Luigi Russolo, Carlo Carrà, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Umberto Boccioni and Gino Severini in front of the offices of the Paris-based, political newspaper, Le Figaro. The newspaper would publish the Futurist Manifesto two weeks later on February 20th, ostensibly after the five artists visited for an editorial meeting, launching their ideas into the world of European intellectuals. In doing so, Schifano joins them as part of Italy’’’’’’’’s long lasting artistic legacy.
