Project Description

The Pompeo Mariani Archives © have a set of printed materials, including catalogues, vintage magazines, newspapers, clippings, letters, envelopes, postcards, diaries, sketches, photographs on paper and on glass, oil paintings, drawings, watercolours, as well as artistic materials such as prepared canvases, frames, brushes, crayons, the first industrially produced colour tubes, props and other typical objects found in the typical late nineteenth century artists’ ateliers, which the Pitscheider family has jealously preserved over the decades. This diverse set of documents and objects might, on the one hand, possess no significant artistic value – yet it is essential as historical and anthropological evidence (as well as being charmingly quirky and curious). It is a collection of work tools that belonged to a renowned Italian professional artist who has worked at the highest level, and which have, in a way, taken in part of the painter’s hard work and genius.
