Collecting Guide: Arte Povera

September 23, 2016

…Are there any Arte Povera artists the market is yet to discover?
From the Arte Povera group, works by Gilberto Zorio are attractively priced. Untitled (1967), above, features in our upcoming Italian Sale and is a masterpiece of both the artist and the movement. Furthermore, the sale features two women artists never previously presented at auction. Self-taught Carol Rama produced paintings that explored sexual identity, while Giosetta Fioroni worked in aluminium enamel paint, veering from Arte Povera to adopt the Pop aesthetic promoted by the Scuola di Piazza del Popolo.
