He is considered to be one of most significant and pre-eminent artists of Italian postmodernism, alongside contemporaries such as Francesco Clemente, Sandro Chia and Giulio Paolini. His work was exhibited in the famous 1962 "New Realists" show at the Sidney Janis Gallery with other young Pop Art and Nouveau réalisme luminaries, including Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. He became part of the core group of artists comprising the "Scuola romana" alongside Franco Angeli and Tano Festa. Image copyright © The Estate of Mario Schifano. [26790-3-400]
