The birth of Venus, work of 1923, signed and dated 1924 in the lower right and numbered in the lower left 13/25 by the author Carlo Dalmazio Carrà (Quargnento, 11 February 1881 – Milan, 13 April 1966), Italian painter and teacher , professor at the Brera Academy from 1939 to 1951.
This work is part of the “transcendent period” of the painter who since 1922 abandoned metaphysics, driven by the desire to “be only himself”. Painting must grasp that relationship which includes the need to identify with things and the need for abstraction “and the contemplation of the landscape is then resolved in the” construction “of a painting, both mountain and marine. He also knows the Milanese painter-poet Cesare Breveglieri (who portrayed him while he was painting).
