Alberto Manfredi, works on paper
Alberto Manfredi (Reggio Emilia, 1930-2001) after graduating at the University of Bologna was, for many years, professor of etching at the Fine Arts Academy in Florence. He was one of the most respected and refined painters and print-makers in Italy. Manfredi frequently met Giorgio Morandi and made many portraits of him. He moved also in literary circles and as a result illustrated over a hundred literary works and 'livres d’artiste'. He held many exhibitions of his paintings which received critical acclaim (the critic Maccari wrote 'Manfredi is one of the very few painters who still knows how to draw'). As a result of his fine draughtsmanship he became a very accomplished printmaker of etchings, drypoints and linocuts, with a wonderful sense of the use of colour. His subjects include portraits, landscapes, animals and female figures and a number of catalogues have been published by leading galleries in which he exhibited, in Italy and France. Many of his prints were not made as commercial editions, but were for his own joy in the art and printed in editions of 10 to 15 impressions.
