TornabuoniArt presents Piero Dorazio - Chromatic Fantasies (1948-82).

This is the first London solo show of the Italian abstract painter Piero Dorazio (1927 – 2005) in a generation. The exhibition will span 35 years of the artist’s career, from his early, cubist-inspired paintings to his large-scale abstract explosions of colour. It will also retrace his influences, from Giacomo Balla to the Abstract Expressionists whom he met during his numerous stays in the USA.
