Benvenuto Disertori, il muro


BENVENUTO DISERTORI (Trento 1887 - Milan 1969) IL MURO (The Wall)
Engraving and etching, 1935-1936. Bellini - Alberti 49. Signed in pen Benvenuto Disertori. A fine impression of the second state, printed in black ink on wove paper.

Benvenuto Disertori was taught at the Accademia in Venice by Guglielmo Ciardi. Thereafter he travelled widely. He was in Munich, Rome, Berlin, Florence and wandered over the provinces of central Italy. The small cities of Umbria and Tuscany: Fiesole, San Gimigniano, Gubbio, Perugia, awoke his love for poets and artists of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries and here he found his vocations, devoting himself to engraving either in wood or in copper. Disertori was also a musicologist and a collector of musical instruments.
