|Supporto: Paper||Altezza: 100 cm|
Mimmo Rotella's SeriDécollage based on the film poster Casablanca, directed by Michael Curtiz, starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid. Not everyone knows that Casablanca is a movie made almost by accident, built day by day, so that the actors did not know how the story would end. Ingrid Bergman looks so seductive because she didn't know with which man his character would choose to stay. Rick or Victor? Humphrey Bogart or Paul Henreid? Being the wife of a bartender or the First Lady of Czechoslovakia? The latter is the interpretation of the protagonist of the film When Harry Met Sally (1989), which favors the second option because: “Women are practical. Including Ingrid Bergman that gets on that plane at the end of the film.”
Seridecollage signed and numbered in original by the artist. Limited edition in 120 works with arabic numerals, 50 works in roman numerals and 20 artistic test. STAMP of Mimmo Rotella Foundation in the lower left. The work is published on catalogue by Elena Pontiggia, p. 66.

Mimmo Rotella (Catanzaro 1918 - Milan 2006) is a famous italian artist of the IXX century.
In 1941 he had to take part in the War and when he returned home he graduated in 1944 at the artistic high school of Naples and then started to teach art in Catanzaro.
In 1945 he was in Rome where he came into contact with the Avan-garde movement and the artists Carla Accardi, Ugo Attardi, Pietro Consagra, Piero Dorazio, Mino Guerrini, Achille Perilli, Antonio Sanfilippo and Giulio Turcato.
From 1947 he has the first contacts with foreign art, expecially the french and the north american arts. Thanks to a Fullbright Fondation grant he went in the USA as an Artist in Residence, in the Kansas University.
This american experience allowed Rotella to discover e know all the most important artists of the artistic trends of those years. After a short stop in his artistic production, he started with the Decollages. Mimmo Rotella took all the comunicative strenght of the commercial and added on posters, and then he put them together on the canvas. His first exposition of this kind of artworks was in Rome, at the exhibition “Esposizione dell’arte attuale”.
This new style culminates in the Cinecittà series, made in 1962, and inspired by the celebrities and myths of the italian and Hollywood movies. Marilyn Monroe was one of his most important subject.
In 1964 he exposed in the Biennale of Venice and in 1965 in the Quadriennale of Rome.
With the aim to collect the works and documents relating to his artistic life, in 2000, by his will, was formed Mimmo Rotella Foundation.
In 2004 he received an honoris causa degree in Architecture at the University Mediterranea of Reggio Calabria.
Mimmo Rotella died in 2006. His works are in many museums and in the major Italian and foreign collections.

if you LIVE IN EU
If you live in Europe (CEE) the price we show you already includes taxes. The works are taxed either with VAT exposed (22%) or VAT with the margin, if you are a private person you do not change anything, if you are a company: in In the first case, you will recover the VAT, in the second, no. When you put the works in the cart you will be separated from the vat exposed.
If you DON'T LIVE IN EU and you want an EXTRA EU shipping
Many works (not all) have an exposed VAT of 22% included in the price, this vat will be spun off! Obviously you will pay the VAT to your destination country, if due.
