Francesco del Drago – Parlare con il colore (Dialogue with Colour) is the first retrospective exhibit dedicated to the Roman artist since his death in 2011. Curated by Pietro Ruffo, this exhibit presents a selection of essential abstract works that allow spectators to enter into the thought process and artistic practice of Francesco del Drago. A strict intellectual and extraordinary artist, he was a protagonist of his era for almost a century. He actively and passionately took part in the artistic transformations and political changes that occurred during the 20th century. The presentation at the Aranciera (Orangery) is “in reverse”: it begins with the artist’s final works – distinguished by his effort to further expand the colour spectrum – to then focus upon his imposing abstract polyptychs, the summa of Del Drago’s artistic quest. His role as theorist is explored in his study of colour – closely linked with the most recent mathematical discoveries – through an abundant selection of documents, film clips and experiments.
