Sperone Westwater Gallery and Mary Boone Gallery, Francesco Clemente, Oversize Card, 1983, Size: 12 ¼ x 9 ¼.

Francesco Clemente was one of the leaders of the international revival of painting in the 1980s that was called the Transavantgardia in Italy, the Neue Wilden (New Wild Ones) in Germany, and is now generally referred to as Neo-expressionism.  This large-size card printed on textured paper announced the heavily promoted two-gallery exhibition that helped establish Clemente’s reputation in America.  As the image shows, Clemente’s roots are as much in Surrealism as in Expressionism.
