~  Piertro Annigoni (1910-88)  ~

        Annigoni, known as a great portrait artst, also painted landscapes and a number of metaphysical compositions. In some compositions he used tailor's dummies and other props, reminiscent of De Chirico. A member of Modern Realist Painters, an Italian group which existed briefly from 1947-49, he was opposed the emergence of abstract art and the avant garde. Some of Annigoni's works have a magical content, examples are included below.
