Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alberto Burri (Citt di Castello, March 12, 1915 - Nice, February 15, 1995), was an Italian abstract painter and sculptor. Citt di Castello has memorialized him with a large permanent museum of his works. Burri earned a medical degree in 1940 from the University of Perugia and was a military physician during World War II. After his unit was captured in Tunisia, he was interned in Camp Howze prisoner-of-war camp in Hereford, Texas in 1944, where he began to paint. After his release in 1946, Burri moved to Rome; his first solo show was at the Galleria La Margherita in 1947.show more
