Showcasing works by members of the Forma 1 group, an association of abstract artists active in Rome from 1947 to 1951, this catalogue provides color reproductions of more than 100 paintings, sculptures and other works produced from the 1940s to the 1990s by Giulio Turcato, Piero Dorazio, Carla Accardi, Achille Perilli, Pietro Consagra and Antonio Sanfilippo, all of whom made notable contributions to the development of postwar Italian abstraction. Eight essays that include examinations of the political, cultural and aesthetic aims of the Forma 1 group as well as discussions of trends in Italian architecture, urban planning and filmmaking in the aftermath of World War II are followed by interviews with the featured artists and individual analyses of their oeuvres, which reflect such varied influences as Futurism, Constructivism, Cubo-Expressionism and Art Informel.
