Translated by Dorothy Cater. First English Edition, 1995. "The painters that are discussed in the following pages belong to the halfway generation. Although some of them, especially Mafai, had reached concrete results even before the last war, it is unquestionalble that they are famous today for the style they developed after the Liberation in 1945. The use of Abstract forms is what these artists have in common; some of them, like Turcato or Vedova rely completely or almost completely on abstractions as a means of expression; others instead, such as Pirandello, Mafai, Cassinari or Scordia, tetain allusions and real images, even though their images are composed within the architecture of abstraction, fulfilling the criteria of contemporary pictorial taste." from the jacket flap.
