Piero Manzoni


About the author

Piero Manzoni (1933-1963) was a self-taught painter whose work heavily featured anthropomorphic silhouettes and the impressions of objects. In 1957, he began making his white paintings—later named Achromes—at first with rough gesso and then with kaolin, as well as with creased canvases or surfaces divided into squares. With Enrico Castellani, he founded the Galleria Azimut in Milan and published two issues of Azimuth magazine.
