Description: Very Good. First Edition. Signed by Illustrator. "As a young man Campigli was briefly involved with the Futurist movement in Milan, publishing a words in freedom poem in the magazine Lacerba. In 1919 he moved to Paris and taught himself to paint, being inspired by the work of Picasso and Lger. From 1926 Campigli exhibited with the Novecento group and developed links with the Italiani di Parigi, an association of artists which included Alberto Savinio, Gino Severini and Filippo de Pisis. His discovery of Etruscan art at Romes Villa Giulia in 1928 was a revelation. His palette grew paler and he began to use dry, fresco-like paint. By the 1940s a world occupied by languorous women was his only subject matter, except for the occasional self-portrait. His work enjoyed great success after the Second World War and he was given a room of his own at the 1948 Venice Biennale." This copy was inscribed by Campigli to fellow artist and photographer Motte Weissman n November of 1949. Slight browning around the edges of the wraps. A few short closed tears. Upper right hand corner bumped. Chipping to the top of the spine. In an acetate jacket.
