Inhaltsangabe: Donati, the young Italian anointed Surrealism's Wunderkind by Andre Breton in 1942, has gone on to a rich career as an artist of the New York School, his vision transformed many times over through 55 years of highly provocative, richly textured, ravishingly colourful work.
Rezension: Theodore Wolff's Enrico Donati: Surrealism And Beyond is a retrospective survey of visually stunning and profoundly moving works of paint and sculpture by a true master. Enrico Donati: Surrealism And Beyond includes such icons of Surrealism as his bronze "Fist" with glass eyes that turn a hand into an eerie face, and the catalogue with a glued-on foam-rubber breast created in collaboration with Duchamp for the 1947 Exposition Internationale due Surrealisme they organized at the Galerie Maeght in Paris, which would prove to the the movement's last big public event. Donati's Surrealist paintings, filled with biomorphic forms in an illusionary space, were followed in the late 1940s by paintings filled with crisp, clear, aggressively geometric forms and planes, a fanciful mechanical world. These were succeeded in turn by gestural paintings that utilize a freely invented calligraphic approach. In 1950 Donati began a series using pigment and glue thickened with vacuum-cleaner lint, their heavy black, gray and white surfaces suggestive of lunar landscapes. Color returned to Donati's work in the Sargon series of the mid-fifties, then came an ancient-looking Fossil series in the early 1960s, and a Coptic Wall series in the late 1970s. Donati's most recent work has seen a gradual enlivening and the incorporation of updated images from the earlier work in often playful geometric structures and ambiguous spaces. At the age of 87, Donati is still at work with passion and imagination on paintings that are highly provocative, richly textured, and ravishingly colorful. Enrico Donati: Surrealism And Beyond is also graced with an insightful and informative monographic essay by Theodore Wolff, "Enrico Donatie: The Fossil and the Stone". With its 87 colorplates and 28 black and white illustrations, Enrico Donati: Surrealism And Beyond is a highly recommended addition to all library art history collections. -- Midwest Book Review
