Lucio Fontana


The Italian artist Lucio Fontana was born in Rosario di Santa Fé in Argentina as the son of Italian immigrants on February 19, 1899.

Throughout his prolific career, Lucio Fontana demonstrated a relentless interest in the relationship between surface and dimensionality. Fontana formulated the theory of Spatialism in a series of manifestos dating from the late 1940s to early 1950s, proposing that matter should be infiltrated by energy in order to generate dimensional, dynamic artistic forms.

Fontana implemented this theory in his series Concetto Spaziale (‘spatial concept’), punching holes in the picture plane and slicing through his canvases in order to expose the dimensional space beneath. Fontana’s innovative theories prefigured later developments in environmental art, performance art, and Arte Povera.

Lucio Fontana belongs to the most important and most influential Italian artists, he dies in Comabbio near Varese on July 7, 1968.


意大利艺术家卢西奥·丰塔纳于1899年2月19日出生于阿根廷罗萨里奥迪圣菲,是意大利移民的儿子。 在他多产的职业生涯中,卢西奥·丰塔纳表现出对表面和维度之间关系的无情兴趣。 Fontana在20世纪40年代末至20世纪50年代早期的一系列宣言中提出了空间主义理论,提出物质应该被能量渗透,以产生立体的,动态的艺术形式。 Fontana在他的系列Concetto Spaziale(“空间概念”)中实现了这一理论,在画面上打孔,并在他的画布上切片以暴露下方的空间空间。丰塔纳的创新理论预示着后来环境艺术,表演艺术和Arte Povera的发展。 Lucio Fontana属于最重要和最有影响力的意大利艺术家,他于1968年7月7日在瓦雷泽附近的Comabbio去世。
