Richard Saltoun Gallery participates in Masterpiece London for the first time with a solo presentation by Italian artist Bice Lazzari (1900–1981), one of the most innovative Italian abstractionists of the 20th Century. Described as the 'Agnes Martin' of Italy, she was largely unknown outside her country of birth despite her significant contributions to Abstract and Minimal art. Her lyrical compositions demonstrate her complete mastery of form, influenced by her love of music and early work in textile design.
The display follows an acclaimed exhibition of her work at Sotheby's S|2 Gallery in 2018, marking the artist's first solo show in the United Kingdom, and precedes a major retrospective of her work at Museo Novecento in Florence, Italy – opening late October 2019.
